New Zealand fast bowler Chris Martin is to join up with Essex in time for their Clydesdale Bank 40 fixture against Middlesex at Lord's on Sunday, 2nd May.

Martin had been signed on a five-week contract to replace Pakistan's Danish Kaneria as Essex's overseas player for the start of the season but visa problems have delayed his arrival.

Martin previously played for Warwickshire in 2008 and the 35-year-old has played 56 Tests, 20 One-Day Internationals and six Twenty20 Internationals for New Zealand.
