Derbyshire bring back Logan van Beek as Billy Stanlake’s replacement


Netherlands seamer was club’s overseas player in 2019 and will return for T20 Blast

Logan van Beek, the Netherlands seamer, will return to Derbyshire for this year’s T20 Blast as a replacement for the injured Billy Stanlake.
Stanlake had been due to play for the club in all formats this season but has flown back to Australia following a stress fracture suffered in his first appearance of the summer against Essex. His replacement, van Beek, was Derbyshire’s overseas player in 2019, and will return to the club for the duration of the Blast.

He was part of the Wellington squad that won the Super Smash last season, and will be the club’s third registered overseas player alongside Ben McDermott and Dustin Melton, with a maximum of two permitted in the same playing XI.

Dave Houghton, Derbyshire’s director of cricket, said: “Logan’s got a great attitude and he fit straight into the squad during what was a successful Vitality Blast run for Derbyshire in 2019 [when they reached Finals Day].

“He’s continued to improve his game over the last two seasons and the silverware for his club in New Zealand, as well as earning a recall to the Netherlands side, is testament to his development.

“We were disappointed to lose Billy [Stanlake] to injury, but in Logan we’ve got a replacement who understands the club and our ambitions for the T20 tournament this summer.”
