SImon Harmer has been one of the standout performers for Essex.
Simon Harmer has joined the Titans squad ahead of their quarterfinal game against South Western Districts in the ongoing CSA Provincial T20 Cup.
A former Test player for South Africa, Harmer has been a regular performer for Essex in the English domestic setup and adds massive experience to the Titans line-up with several players away on national duty. With regular captain Dean Elgar still sidelined with a hamstring, the side will again be skippered by Aaron Phangiso.
“There is a winning culture here, and we always want to build on that. It's great having Simon joining us, because he's someone who has shown that a spinner is as big a threat as a fast bowler in any format,” Phangiso said.
Coach Mandla Mashimbyi said: “Harmy is a great addition, because he brings a proper threat with the ball, and also provides a handy batting option. We've started steadily, but now we want to really get into our stride with the knockouts ahead of us.”
Updated Titans squad:Jan Hendrik Pretorius, Corbin Bosch, Junior Dala, Dayyaan Galiem, Aya Gqamane, Okuhle Cele, Neil Brand, Jiveshen Pillay, Theunis de Bruyn, Grant Mokoena, Aaron Phangiso (C), Gihahn Cloete, Sibonelo Makhanya, Donovan Ferreira, Simon Harmer.
