Worcestershire batsman Jack Haynes will represent Green Point Cricket Club during the second half of the 2021-22 Western Province Cricket Association club season.
Haynes averages 32 in first-class cricket and played for Worcestershire in the 2021 County Championship in the United Kingdom.
He was particularly successful in early September’s victory over Sussex, striking 42 and 67.
The 20-year-old right-hander also hit a 128-ball 153 at List A level, against Essex in the One-Day Cup earlier this year.
“We are yet again fortunate enough to bring across a professional cricketer to our club to follow on from the success of Wesley Barresi,” Green Point Cricket Club chairman Marc Callanan told Club Cricket SA.

Whether Kent and Zimbabwe batsman Tawanda Muyeye joins Green Point Cricket Club during the first half of the 2021-22 season, meanwhile, remains in the balance. Muyeye has been navigating visa allowance delays.
Green Point Cricket Club have been promoted to the WPCA premier league after a successful 2019-20 first division A campaign. The 2020-21 season was not played due to the coronavirus pandemic.
