Warwickshire have signed South Africa Test batsman Pieter Malan as their overseas player for the 2021 season.

Malan, 31, has been signed purely for red-ball cricket, starting with the County Championship opener against Derbyshire at Edgbaston on 8 April.

“It’s always been an ambition of mine to play county cricket,” said Malan.

“I can’t wait to get started with the Bears. I’m very excited to be afforded the opportunity at a top county with a proud history like Warwickshire.”
