Cricket Hong Kong’s T20 Blitz franchise JD Jaguars, have up the ante in terms of overseas professionals signings for the 2018 edition by adding current Netherlands International, Roelof van der Merwe to go along with their earlier signing of Australian Chris Lynn into their squad.
A prolific all-rounder for both Netherlands and English county, Somerset, van der Merwe switched his profile from South Africa to Netherlands a few years back and has been an integral part of the dutch set-up in both shorter and longer formats of the game.
