Glamorgan swoop for Rudolph
Glamorgan have signed South African opening batsman Jacques Rudolph as their overseas player for the next two seasons subject to receiving international clearance from Cricket South Africa.
Rudolph, who has played in 93 Tests and one-day internationals, has amassed 46 centuries in over 16,000 first-class runs to date.
He is also proven at county level where he scored 5,429 runs over four seasons for Yorkshire where he maintained a batting average of 52.20.
Former Glamorgan batsman Hugh Morris, who will join the county as Chief Executive and Director of Cricket, is thrilled with the capture of the experienced Rudolph.
"Signing a player of Jacques Rudolph's undoubted capabilities and experience is a great boost ahead of the new season," he said.
"With an increasingly heavy first-class schedule it will be a huge advantage to have a world-class opening batsman available to us. I look forward to welcoming Jacques to Glamorgan."
Rudolph, who is currently playing Champions League cricket in India for the Titans, said: "I'm delighted to be joining Glamorgan on a two-year deal.
"I enjoyed my time playing for Yorkshire so I'm looking forward to the challenge at Glamorgan and hopefully enjoying similar success."
