Batsman Jesse Christensen has joined Rondebosch Cricket Club ahead of the 2020-21 Western Province Cricket Association premier league.
Christensen previously represented the University of the Western Cape Cricket Club.
Capped 10 times at first-class level, he is contracted by Western Province at provincial level.
The right-handed Christensen played for the Cricket South Africa Invitation XI against England twice earlier this year. He fell early on both occasions, to leg-spinners Matthew Parkinson and Joe Denly.
RCC’s 2019-20 campaign
Rondebosch Cricket Club topped the 12-team standings at the end of the 2019-20 WPCA premier league. They won 18 matches – 16 with bonus points – in 21 attempts.
Rondebosch Cricket Club, however, have not formally been crowned champions by the WPCA. Whether this happens remains in the balance. Durbanville Cricket Club have contested a contentious second-place finish.
Rondebosch Cricket Club have also welcomed former Dolphins all-rounder Calvin Savage for the 2020-21 season, the start of which has been delayed amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The University of the Western Cape Cricket Club, meanwhile, have also lost batsman Givon Christian – to Western Province Cricket Club.
