West Indies Twenty20 captain Darren Sammy has signed with Glamorgan for the ongoing Natwest T20 Blast until the start of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL).
Sammy has already received a No Objection Certificate from the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) and is thus likely to be available for Glamorgan’s next Twenty20 match against Sussex on May 30.
The hard-hitting all-rounder could play seven Twenty20 matches before returning to the West Indies to captain the St Lucia Zouks in the CPL.
“Darren’s skills with bat and ball have delighted crowds all around the world in Twenty20 competitions in recent years so we’re delighted to welcome him to Glamorgan,” Glamorgan chief executive Hugh Morris said.
Glamorgan head coach Toby Radford added: “Darren is a top quality T20 player and a fine addition to our dressing room as he brings with him experience at the highest level. Darren was a leader on and off the field during my days with the West Indies, so it will be great to work with him again at Glamorgan.”
