Former Claremont Cricket Club player Kyle Williamson has been included in Victoria’s emerging performance squad for Australia’s 2021-22 domestic season.

Williamson was capped by Western Province three times at the 2018 Africa T20 Cup, but later relocated to Australia – and has put in several solid performances for Melbourne Cricket Club since.

“We are looking forward to continuing to offer opportunities to players of interest from outside the state squad,” said Victoria assistant coach Andre Borovec.

“This squad has diversity in terms of not only skill set, but also experience. Our goal is to provide each player with an experience that will add value to their preparation for the 2021-22 season.”

Fellow leg-spinner Peter Hatzoglou, who featured for the Melbourne Renegades in the Big Bash League, has also been included in the squad.

Former Australia and Victoria seamer Clint McKay will coach the squad.

Claremont Cricket Club players globally

Claremont Cricket Club have also been represented elsewhere around the world.

Former WPCA premier league captain James Cameron-Dow played one Test and four ODIs for Ireland against Afghanistan in 2019.

All-rounder Luke Schofield is with the St Louis Americans for Minor League Cricket in the United States of America.
