Titans coach, Mark Boucher, has opened the door for SWD bowling hero Marcello Piedt’s aspirations for a franchise contract as he will join the Titans in Pretoria with immediate effect until the end of the month for the remaining matches in the Momentum One Day Cup.
With the SWD’s provincial commitments for the season concluded the loan agreement, which is permitted in terms of Cricket SA regulations, will give Piedt the opportunity to play himself into a franchise contract.
According to SWD Cricket Chief Executive, Albertus Kennedy, they have agreed to the loan. “We are grateful if talented players from our region receive a call-up for higher honours and although a potential long terms departure will be a big draw-back for us, we are looking forward to his performance at the Titans”.
Piedt, who made his debut for SWD in 2012 is a big stalwart for SWD Cricket and is one of many talented bowlers from SWD like Gurshwin Rabie, Otneill Baartman and Glenton Stuurman who made their mark in provincial cricket in South Africa.
