Tristan Stubbs pens T20 Blast deal for 2023

Destructive T20 all-rounder Tristan Stubbs will join Durham for the Vitality Blast in 2023.

South African, Stubbs has earned a reputation in the shorter format of the game impressing with his hard-hitting batting at the top of the order and his right-arm off break bowling.

In his maiden international innings for South Africa, he struck a 28-ball 72 against England in Bristol, bringing up his first international T20 50 in 19 balls.

With a strike rate of almost 170 in IT20 matches, Stubbs is now regarded as one of South African cricket’s most talented up and coming all-rounders.

The 22-year-old has 1028 T20 runs which includes his career best 80 which came off 31 balls for Eastern Province against KwaZulu-Natal Coastal.

The right-handers impressive start to his T20 career has seen him shine on the franchise circuit having featured in the IPL with Mumbai Indians, Sunrisers Eastern Cape and then last summer in the Hundred with Manchester Originals.

He was recently part of the Sunrisers Eastern Cape wining side playing alongside new Durham teammate Brydon Carse.

Proving a more than useful off-break bowler, Stubbs has 11 all format wickets to his name, having claimed a career best 2/6 against Welsh Fire in the Hundred.

Tristan Stubbs said: “I’m really excited to join Durham for the T20 Blast this summer. I have spent some time with Brydon during the winter and he’s only had good things to say about the club.

“I can’t wait to get over to Durham and meet up with my new teammates. Having played in England last summer I know how much the fans love their cricket so it should be a really fun and successful summer.”

Director of Cricket, Marcus North said: “We are extremely pleased to have secured the signing of Tristan Stubbs.

At 22, he already has experience playing for South Africa and in major T20 franchise leagues around the world where he has produced some world class performances.”
