Nannes To Join Notts

CRICKET : Nottinghamshire have signed Australian paceman Dirk Nannes for next year’s domestic Twenty20 competition.

Nottinghamshire have signed Australian paceman Dirk Nannes for next year’s domestic Twenty20 competition.
The eccentric 33-year-old has been one of the stars of the shortest format since its inception, starring for Middlesex, the Delhi Daredevils and the Victoria Bushrangers at domestic level as well earning an Australia call following a spell with the Dutch national side.
Nottinghamshire director of cricket Mick Newell said: “I regard Dirk as the most effective Twenty20 bowler in the world and he will be a great addition to our attack given the wealth of experience he possesses.”
Nannes helped inspire Middlesex to the 2008 Twenty20 Cup trophy but he will perhaps best be remembered in England for helping the Dutch overturn Paul Collingwood’s side in the opening game of this summer ICC World Twenty20.
Newell added: “The likes of Ali Brown, David Hussey, Samit Patel, Alex Hales and Chris Read will give provide good depth to our Twenty20 batting line-up so bolstering the bowling unit was always going to be the priority when we were considering our recruitment plans.
“Dirk has got good pace, he can bowl left-arm around the wicket and he bowls a good yorker which will come into play at the end of the innings.
“His achievements in the IPL underline his pedigree and we’re signing him at the peak of his powers.”
Nannes added: “I’m ecstatic to have the opportunity to come and play for Nottinghamshire next year and to have the familiar faces of past team mates Hussey and Pattinson lining up alongside me as well as respected former opposition.
“Nottinghamshire is a proud club, and has been highly recommended to me by former players and opposition alike.
“I have no doubt it will be a great season, and I am looking forward to the challenge of trying to win another Twenty20 title.”
