NOTTINGHAM, England – Nottinghamshire have signed West Indies all-rounder Darren Sammy on a short-term deal for this season.
The 31-year-old is set to be at Trent Bridge for a month and will represent Notts Outlaws in four NatWest T20 Blast matches between Friday May 31 and Friday June 12.
He could also return later in the summer should they reach the competition’s quarter-finals and finals day.
Nottinghamshire director of cricket Mick Newell insists he’s the perfect player to fit into the side at a time where players may be away from Trent Bridge on international duty.
“We’ve got to look at the summer in terms of where and when we might lose players to international cricket,” said Newell.
“There’s a period in June where we could lose James Taylor and Alex Hales to international cricket and therefore we need to strengthen up the team at that time.
“It’s a gap between the IPL and the Caribbean Premier League where Darren was available and keen to play.
