Milnerton Cricket Club have revealed the acquisition of county cricketer Max Waller for the 2015-16 season.
MCC gained promotion to the Western Province Cricket Association’s first division A league on the back of a successful 2014-15 campaign – and the arrival of Waller will continue the club’s pursuit of higher honours.
The 27-year-old Waller represented Somerset in the Royal London One-Day Cup and NatWest t20 Blast earlier this year – and boasts a solid first-class cricket pedigree, including County Championship Division One experience alongside former Australian batsman Justin Langer and England wicketkeeper-batsman Craig Kieswetter.
“Malcolm is a welcome recruit for us. He brings some great leg-spin and he will probably bat in the middle order,” MCC chairman Mike Reynders told Club Cricket SA.
” With Max on board, and a handful of other good cricketers back on board, I’m looking forward to a big season.”
Settling in nicely in Cape Town and decent first weekend of cricket! Nice to be bowling some overs and spending some time in the middle… ?

Captained by the experienced Damian Crowley, MCC will be accompanied by the relegated Edgemead Cricket Club and University of Cape Town Cricket Club, the promoted Northerns Goodwood Cricket Club – and Tygerberg Cricket Club, Claremont Cricket Club, Montrose Cricket Club, Ottoman Cricket Club, Avendale Cricket Club and Fish Hoek Cricket Club in the first division A league this season.
