Right-hand batsman and off-spinner Yaseen Vallie has been named captain of the Eastern Cape Warriors Franchise for the 4-Day Domestic Series in the 2020/21 season.

“The appointment of Yaseen as captain brings stability to the squad,” says coach Robbie Peterson.

“While Jon-Jon Smuts has done a great job as captain over the past few years, he is now involved with cricket at a national level and is not always available to head up the team.

“Yaseen has proven his leadership skills during his time with the squad, and we believe he is now ready to captain a winning team,” says Peterson.

“I feel it is the right time and I am ready to take on the new challenge,” adds Vallie.

“We have been training hard as a team. I feel we have done all the hard yards, and are ready for the season,” he says.

Vallie started playing indoor cricket when he was eight years old, and moved on to the hard ball game a year later.

In 2008 Vallie went to the Under-19 World Cup with the South Africa Under-19s team.

On his franchise debut, he scored 150.

Vallie made his First-Class debut in 2009, his List-A debut in 2008 and his T20 debut in 2011.

He joined the Warriors in 2015.
