Denovan Ekstraal

ROSUDGEON have snapped up former South West Districts all-rounder Denovan Ekstraal for their Cornwall League campaign.

Ekstraal (29) is a genuine pace bowling all-rounder with a proven record at home in South Africa and abroad in UK league cricket.

A product of the South West Districts system, he represented the province through the age-groups and made First-Class and List-A debut’s in February 2007. These, surprisingly proved to be his only appearances at senior level for SWD, despite taking figures of 3-12 from 7 overs in the second innings against Kei.

Thereafter, Ekstraal represented the South African Rural team and was in the wider Western Province squad. He continues to excel in club cricket for his St Augustines in the WPCA 1B Competition in Cape Town.

Abroad, Ekstraal has been a consistent performer for the five clubs he has represented, namely Old Elizabethans (2009, 2013), Newark Ransome and Marles (2011), Langley Manor (2012), Barton (2014) and HSBC (2015).

Across his 6 seasons, he has amassed 2,287 league runs averaging 27.89 and taken 152 wickets at 20.78.

The 2011 season in the Bassetlaw League was his most prolific scoring 563 runs at 40.21 alongside 41 wickets at 20.07. That said, in 2013 he also churned out 1,363 runs at 54.52 including 5 centuries (plus 28 wickets at 25.54) in both Division 2 of the Birmingham League and Worcestershire Sunday League.

Ekstraal is looking to impress on his return, this time for Rosudgeon in the Cornwall Cricket League.
