Michael Rippon has been added to the Dutch squad preparing for a T20I and three ODIs against the Kiwis in New Zealand.

“That’s fantastic news,” says High Performance Manager Roland Lefebvre. “We are delighted that Michael is available for these Super League matches and our thanks go to Otago and NZC for making this possible.”

Rippon grew up in South Africa, played for Sussex in 2012 and for Otago in New Zealand for several years. The 30-year-old cricketer is a left arm wrist spinner and right-handed batsman.

National coach Ryan Campbell: “The addition of Michael Rippon to the roster for the tour is really great for us. We’ve been working on it for a while. He adds a dimension to our team and experience to this young group. I’m really looking forward to it looking forward to him going bowling in tandem with our young spinners.”

In 2013 he made his debut for the Netherlands. His last game for the Orange was in 2018 against Nepal. In first class cricket Rippon bats with an average of 28.82. In addition, he took 102 wickets.
