Marco Marais – South Africa

Marco Marais is a powerful top order bat and a more than useful bowler, he is now 27 and has a 1st class batting average of 36.72 and short format averages around 33, he is a very very good bat. Of course Marco is most famous for his incredible 300* not out off just 191 balls against Eastern Province breaking the world record for the fastest triple century in the process. Marco plays for the Border Province and has also appeared for the Warriors Franchise and in 2018 & 2019 was selected for the SA T20 Super League playing for the Nelson Mandela Giants he also has extensive experience at UK Club level and unsurprisingly has been a huge success.

Next stop was Hampshire in the Southern Premier League for Alton C.C. in a shortened season of only 16 innings he racked up another 400 runs averaging 35.
