West Indies all-rounder Darren Sammy to join Nottinghamshire on one-month deal

Nottinghamshire announce that West Indies all-rounder Darren Sammy will join the team for one month to compete in this summer's T20 Blast.

Nottinghamshire have announced that West Indies all-rounder Darren Sammy will join the team for one month during the season.

The 31-year-old, who is currently competing at the World Cup with his nation, will play for Notts Outlaws in four NatWest T20 Blast matches between May and June.

Nottinghamshire director of cricket Mick Newell told the club's website: "We've got to look at the summer in terms of where and when we might lose players to international cricket.

"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.

"[Sammy's] an explosive Twenty20 player, with a reputation around the world for being a good player and a good bloke. We're looking forward to welcoming him to the team and hope he can help us achieve a good season in the NatWest T20 Blast."

An option has been put in place to negotiate Sammy's return should Nottinghamshire reach the quarter-finals.
