Somerset Director of Cricket Andy Hurry said: “I’m delighted to be able to share the news of the signing of Marchant, who will no doubt add real value, a different dimension to an already potent bowling attack and demonstrates our intent to continue to strive to winning silverware.”

“Marchant’s skill, experience and ability to bowl at express pace will complement our bowling group perfectly. He has the proven ability to take wickets and positively change and influence games across all formats and I believe he will be a great fit for our environment.”

After signing his contract, De Lange said: “It is a huge privilege for me to be joining Somerset and I can’t wait to start my journey with such an ambitious and proud Club. I am very excited of the prospect of being part of a formidable team and striving towards winning multiple competitions and silverware. It is very noticeable how well supported the Club is and I am really looking forward to meeting the members and supporters hopefully on their safe return in 2021.”
