Louis Delport is an accomplished left-arm spin bowling all-rounder playing for the Auckland Aces in New Zealand domestic cricket.

Originally from South Africa, Delport represented Western Province in 2014/15 before emigrating to New Zealand shortly thereafter. Following his qualification period, Delport was selected to play for Auckland during the 2017/18 season, and he hasn’t looked back.

Since his Aces debut, Delport has forged quite the career in New Zealand. Last summer (2022/23) he bagged his 100th domestic wicket and given his numbers across all formats, Delport is hoping to push for higher honours.

Not only a strong left-arm spinner, the Aces star is a competent batter who has produced several match-winning performances. He has been a key component of the Aces success in recent years, including successive Ford Trophy titles (2019/20-20/21), and a Plunket Shield during the same year.

Individually, Delport averages mid-20s with the ball in white ball cricket, and low 30s in red-ball, including 3 x 5-fors and a hatrick. The talented all-rounder is a fantastic performer, who also enjoyed success in England many years ago, is now eager to return to Northern shores for another stint in 2024.

Delport will be available from mid-May and available till early September, and is someone we highly recommend.
