Michael Klinger, the South African born cricketer who captains Gloucester in the English Country League will be around for the start of the season after he remained on the shelf at the recent auction for foreign players to take part in next season’s Indian Premier League.

Klinger, who has previously appeared in the IPL for Kochi Tuskers Kerala in 2011, was facing some strong opposition among  the 514 players whose contracts were up for auction in last week’s draw that took place in Bangalore.

Michael Klinger’s contract not being picked up in India will be good news for the Gloucestershire County cricket team and their loyal supporters, as their captain will be available for the start of the  County cricket season which gets underway in May.

Michael Klinger began his career in first class cricket in season 2008/2009 playing with the South Australia Redbacks based in the city of Adelaide where he was born.

Klinger’s excellent form in the 2011 Indian Premier League captured the attention of a number of cricket scouts throughout the world, and in December 2012, he was eventually signed by English county Gloucestershire.

Michael made a few guest appearances for Worstershire at the start of the 2011 season, enough to impress Gloucestershire into signing him as not only their sole overseas player for the 2013 season, but also to immediately take up the role of team captain.

During his spell at the club  Michael Klinger has succeeded in scoring over 1000 runs in the County Championship, including 6 centuries, as well as another 1000 runs in the increasingly popular limited over matches.
