Harlan Greig is a talented, spin-bowling all-rounder from South Africa’s Western Cape. An attacking, right-handed middle order Batsman, Harlan is also an excellent Right-arm Leg Spinner. Growing up in Boland, he attended Parel Vallei High School for whom he represented their 1st XI from the age of 14. He now lives in Cape Town and plays his league cricket for the powerhouse Claremont CC in the Western Province Cricket Association Premier League.

After finishing school, Harlan ventured to the UK for the first time in 2016, joining Macclesfield CC in the ECB Cheshire Premier League, which was a sharp learning curve from the flat wickets of the Western Cape to the more bowler friendly decks of Northern England. He return in 2018 a much more accomplished and confident player, joining Clacton CC in the Two Counties League for what end up being a 2-year stint which included the captaincy in 2019. In his 2 seasons with Clacton CC, Harlan accrued 1519 runs @ 34.52 and chipped in with an impressive 94 wickets @ 20.35.

Since the return of club Cricket in March 2021, Harlan is has been in good form for Claremont CC, getting stuck into Cape Town CC with a run-a-ball 55 (55) & bagging 3-13 but with limited game time possible this summer, Harlan sought a return to the UK in 2021, joining New Milton CC in the ECB Southern Premier 1st Division. Whilst not as prolific with the bat as he would have hoped, he put in a good all-round performance with 506 runs @ 25.30 and 32 wickets @ 15.84 to finish as the divisions leading wicket-taker.

He returned to the UK in 2022, linking with Newtown Linford CC in the ECB Leics Prem, picking up 44 wickets and 461 runs as the club maintained their place in the Premier Division for another season.

Holding a UK Passport, Harlan is seeking to join a premier league club for next summer and has ambition to push on to county cricket long term.
