Talent and temperament
South African Test star Pieter Malan, who has been signed as Warwickshire’s overseas player for 2021, is the sort of cricketer anybody wants in their side. A solid, likeable guy, a great team man and a high-class batsman.
Testament to Pieter’s skills and versatility with the bat is that he averages over 40 in all three formats – not any players have the talent and the temperament to do that. Many pundits in his native country believe the 31-year-old should have played many more that his three Tests so far.
“Pieter is also a very impressive man, friendly, likeable and polite, but with real inner steel and with a point to prove. I know how much he wants to come to the Bears and score some serious runs.”
