Kent have announced the signing of West Indian quick Miguel Cummings for the start of their county championship season.
The 30-year-old will be available for the first 8 matches of the season. Cummins played for Middlesex in the Bob Willis Trophy last year and obviously left an impression on his new employers by taking 5 wickets for 62 runs when the two sides met.
Cummins has played across formats for the West Indies, including 14 Test matches, and overall has taken 231 first-class wickets in 82 matches to date, at an average of 25.71.
With the first 8 games of the season set to take place in April and May, Cummins is likely to find conditions to his liking with plenty of swing and a few green tops to work with.
Cummins spoke to the official Kent Cricket website upon his signing:
“It’s great to be joining an ambitious team like Kent and I am certainly looking forward to bowling at Canterbury again.
“It’s also fantastic to be joining a county with a proud history of West Indian players and coaches in the past, especially with another fellow Barbadian in John Shepherd being a big part of Kent’s history.
“I’m here to add to that proud tradition, and make my own mark with the ball for Kent this season.”
