De Grandhomme shifts to Northern Districts

Allrounder Colin de Grandhomme will turn out for Norther Districts in the 2018-19 New Zealand domestic season. His decision to leave Auckland, whom he has represented since 2007, follows on from a change of address. Moving house to Tauranga means playing for Northern Districts would be logistically easier.

“I have a lot of respect for Auckland Cricket and want to thank the team and the staff for everything they’ve done for me over the years,” de Grandhomme said, according to a New Zealand Cricket press release. “It was a hard decision, but I’m looking forward to representing Northern Districts in a big season ahead.”

De Grandhomme is just done with IPL 2018, where he played for Royal Challengers Bangalore. In nine games for RCB, he scored 131 runs at 26.20 and a strike rate of 155.95, and picked up two wickets.
