Twenty20 Head Coach, Dominic Cork, is pleased to be reuniting with Logan van Beek, as the overseas quick arrives for the 2021 Vitality Blast.
The Netherlands fast bowler is no stranger to Cork or Derbyshire, having played for the club in 2019, taking nine wickets on the way to a first Finals Day appearance.
With Australian international Billy Stanlake forced to cut his spell with Derbyshire short due to injury, van Beek has been brought in to provide some more white ball experience within the bowling attack, as Derbyshire aim to replicate their success of two years ago.
Cork is delighted that van Beek, who has won a number of white ball silverware in New Zealand since his last spell with the club, will be returning for the Twenty20 competition, and is looking forward to seeing how his game has improved.
“Logan is a fantastic person to have around, and he has experience of the success we had [in 2019],” he said.
“Last time he was here, he had a few injuries which didn’t help him, but having watched him in New Zealand, he has improved and he brings a wealth of experience. He can bat, he can bowl and he has some great hands, Logan has taken some great catches in New Zealand.
“Importantly, he know the club, he knows what we are all about and what we want to do. He also knows me as a coach and how I want him to lead the side as an experienced cricketer.”
Tickets for all Vitality Blast home games are on sale now, but they’re selling fast so don’t delay if you want to cheer on the Falcons in Derbyshire this summer.
