Michael Klinger, the 33-year-old South Australian batsman has moved to Western Australia. Klinger has signed a two year deal with the Western Australia Warriors and that would see him turn up for the 2013-14 and the 2015-16 season.

Sydney Morning Herald reported that the signing comes in the wake of the retirement of Marcus North, the former Australian Test batsman who was one of the main players at Western Australia. Ben Oliver, the General Manager of the Western Australia Cricket Association (WACA) said, “Marcus North’s recent retirement created a gap in top-order batting experience and we feel Michael is the perfect person to fill this gap.”

Oliver said that Klinger would bring in a lot of experience and that is crucial for Western Australia. “He is a seasoned performer at First-Class level and is highly regarded both on and off the field. His experience and leadership will be invaluable for the Western Warriors as our younger players develop and as we continue to build a strong and successful culture in Western Australia cricket,” he said.

Klinger was initially in Victoria and had signed up with South Australia a few years ago, where he did very well. He plays for Gloucestershire in English county cricket and has played for the Kochi Tuskers Kerala in the Indian Premier League (IPL) in 2011.
