Middlesex’s Director of Cricket, Alan Coleman explained the reasoning behind signing Jayant and how he will replace South African Pieter Malan. Coleman said, “With Pieter Malan returning home to South Africa, we wanted to bolster the squad with another quality signing ahead of four crucial matches that lay ahead of us in September. We feel that spin will be an important factor in September and the opportunity to sign an international spinner of Jayant’s quality was too good an opportunity to turn down.”
