The Lions have announced the signing of Wesley Marshall, a top-order batsman born in Kempton Park.
Marshall, 26, made his T20 debut for senior-provincial side, Easterns, in 2013 and a first-class and List A debut followed in 2014 and 2015 respectively.
The top-order batsman is capable across all three formats of the game. He was leading run-scorer for Easterns in the 2017/2018 and 2018/2019 seasons of the CSA 3-Day Provincial Cup, as well as leading scorer for his union in the CSA One Day Provincial Challenge in the 2018/2019 season.
Marshall was one of the outstanding players in the recent CSA T20 Challenge as he was part of the Easterns side that won the 2019/2020 trophy where he contributed with a well-played knock of 87 in the final.
Marshall also played franchise cricket for the Lions' cross-town rivals, the Titans, and scored a first-class half-century against the Lions at the Wanderers in December last year.
His domestic exploits were rewarded has he received a call-up to represent the Durban Heat in the recently concluded Mzansi Super League second edition.
"I remember watching games at the Wanderers stadium with my mom, mad and brothers as a child and dreaming of playing there one day, so to now call it home is a special feeling and I look forward to being part of and contributing to this successful franchise. Thank you to all that has contributed to my development over the years," Marshall said.
