Cape Town - Highveld Lions opening batsman Rassie van der Dussen will join the second half of the season for the St Kitts & Nevis Patriots at this year's Caribbean Premier League (CPL).

The St Kitts & Nevis Patriots have made two additions to their squad ahead of their CPL campaign, which gets underway on August 8.

The tournament will run until September 16 and will feature matches played in St Kitts, Trinidad, Guyana, Barbados, Jamaica, St Lucia and the USA.

The Patriots will be joined by Van der Dussen for the second half of the season as Sandeep Lamicchane is leaving for national duty with Nepal on August 26.

Van der Dussen is an explosive batsman that has three T20 hundreds in 65 matches for the Johannesburg-franchise.

Speaking about the new additions to the squad, Patriots head coach Donovan Miller said: "It is always sad to lose players that we drafted but in Hayden Walsh Jr and Rassie van der Dussen we have two players that we are very confident will succeed at this year’s CPL as we look to go one game better than last year and win the tournament in 2018."
