Paarl Rocks CEO James Fortuin wished Vince well in the upcoming season of the Big Bash.

“As captain of his county Hampshire, and an England player, he brought great experience into our team and he played a vital role in getting us to the final next Monday,” he said.

Fortuin said the Rocks were aware of the arrangement for Vince to join the Sydney Sixers at the conclusion of this weekend’s fixtures when he was signed.
