Yorkshire have secured a big-name acquisition for their upcoming t20 schedule.

Big hitting South African left-hander David Miller has signed to play for Yorkshire Carnegie in this summer’s Friends Life t20 competition.

The top order powerhouse will be available for all of Yorkshire’s games through to Finals Day if required.

Martyn Moxon, Yorkshire’s director of cricket, said: “David is available for the whole tournament which made him an attractive proposition. You look at his strike-rate, he averages 120-plus per hundred balls, and in the Indian Premier League he’s been scoring at 150-plus.

“He’s that explosive type of player we’ve been looking for. I’m excited by the squad we’ve assembled for this campaign.”
