Northants unveil Holder
Northamptonshire have announced they have signed West Indies captain Jason Holder for the start of the county campaign.
The 27-year-old has impressed during the Test series against England and is now set to travel to the UK in a few months.
Holder will be available for the first two matches of the County Championship season and six Royal London One-Day Cup matches.
He has scored 1,783 runs in 37 Tests but won't get the chance to improve that record this week after the International Cricket Council suspended him for the third and final Test against England for his team's slow over-rate.
When asked about the Northants move, Holder told reporters: "England is somewhere I've wanted to play for a long time and I'm looking forward to the experience of county cricket, and testing myself in the different conditions.
"Northamptonshire has a reputation of being a good club to be a part of, with a tight-knit squad and coaches who want to get the best out of their players.
"I'm hopeful from a personal point that it will provide me a good opportunity of acclimatising to English conditions and getting some time in the middle ahead of the World Cup in England, and I'm grateful to Northamptonshire for the opportunity which I am really looking forward to."
