Nottinghamshire have confirmed they have signed opener Kraigg Brathwaite for the rest of the County Championship season. The West Indies Test star will replace Quinton de Kock and is now set to play in five matches.
Brathwaite, 25, will play his first first game on Sunday against Hampshire at the Ageas Bowl, while he is also set to take on Surrey, Yorkshire, Essex and Somerset.
He played two matches for Yorkshire last summer, following the end of the West Indies tour.
Batsman De Kock was due to play four Championship games before being withdrawn by Cricket South Africa earlier this month and Brathwaite admits he cannot wait to get started.
He said: “I’m excited about getting going at this great club. Hopefully I can help the side push for the Championship title in the run-in.
“Being able to call Trent Bridge home for a few weeks will be a great feeling.”
