Nottinghamshire Look To Chris Cairns For Twenty20 Cup
Notts Outlaws hope to complete the signing of New Zealand all-rounder Chris Cairns in time for their opening Twenty20 Cup game against Yorkshire on Friday.
Cairns made his Notts debut as an 18-year-old in 1988 and enjoyed a glittering Test career in which he scored 3,320 runs and took 218 wickets.
Renowned for his big hits and intelligent bowling, Cairns is delighted to be re-joining a club for which he has a huge affinity.
“Notts have been part of my life for twenty years and I truly thought that I had played my last game for the club so I am pleased to have the chance to make a return,” said Cairns.
“I am a Notts member, I have always kept an eye on the results and there is no other club that I would have rather joined.
“It was a late decision and the registration could come down to the wire but I’m fit to play and I can’t wait to get started.
“The Twenty20 format suits my style because I like to entertain and I love winning cricket matches.”
The move remains subject to ECB approval and Notts hope to receive confirmation of completion on Thursday.
