Australia all-rounder Daniel Christian will represent Middlesex during the Natwest T20 Blast after inking a deal with the club.
Christian is expected to feature in all of Middlesex’s Twenty20 matches due to Australia’s free schedule.
“I am delighted to have signed with Middlesex for the 2014 Natwest T20 Blast,” Christian said. “The opportunity to play at the Home of Cricket is a dream come true and I can’t wait to pull on a Middlesex shirt for the first time. Kicking off the tournament with a double-header at Lords against Sussex and Essex in front of what I am sure will be a full house promises to be one of the highlights of my career. I look forward to helping Eoin and the boys challenge for silverware this year.”
Middlesex director of cricket Angus Fraser added: “When we sat down to identify the type of cricketer Middlesex CCC required for this summer’s NatWest T20 Blast a seam bowling all-rounder was top of our list. We are therefore delighted to have attained the services of such an experienced, talented and dangerous cricketer.
“Unlike many of this summer’s T20 signings Dan is available for selection for all of our NatWest T20 Blast Group matches, which was important to us. We believe Dan will offer the team experience and match winning performances; assets that any team would want to have. His recent appearances for Australia highlight how highly regarded he is Down Under too.”
