The Hills have signed 24 year-old South African Ismaeel Gafieldien for the 2021 season.

He is a top-order left-handed batsman who can also bowl occasion medium-pace or leg-spin when required.

A prolific 2020 season saw him score three centuries in four innings for Boland, which saw him earn a franchise contract with Cape Cobras.

He averages 34.34 in first-class cricket, with three centuries and nine fifties.

A qualified Cricket South Africa Level Two coach, he is sure to be a big hit at Milverton both on and off the field.
