Divan Marais-Sep-2015

SOUTH DEVON have signed hard-hitting top-order batsman Divan Marais for their 2016 Devon League campaign.

Marais (24) has been a strong performer in the Gauteng Premier League for club side Khosa in recent years, whilst also dominating abroad in the Devon Cricket League.

He has played for two Devon clubs, namely Chudleigh in 2012 (B Division) and a three season stint with Chagford in the C Division West (2013-15).

During his first stint, he was the division's second leading run-scorer (481 runs at 37), a position he also filled upon his return in C Division striking 829 runs at 59.21.

Marais suffered a dip in form in 2014, scoring only 315 league runs, however made amends in 2015 by topping the Devon Cricket League run charts scoring 1,022 runs at 78.82 including 4 centuries - 169, 143*, 140* and 116 which helped his team to a 4th placed finish.

Marais will return to the UK this summer to play for Devon League's B Division side South Devon.
