Nottinghamshire have signed left-handed West Indian batsman Darren Bravo as their overseas player for the remainder of the season following the departures of Australians David Hussey and Adam Voges.

Bravo, 22, is expected to go straight into the team to play Glamorgan in the CB40 on 12th August and will become Nottinghamshire's fourth overseas player employed this seaso after Hussey, Voges and Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal.

"We scoured the world to find an overseas batsman to reinforce our top order and we felt that Darren was a player who was worth pursuing," Nottinghamshire Director of Cricket Mick Newell said.

"He has an excellent record for a 22 year old batsman and we feel that he is a player who has the hunger to succeed in county cricket.

"His Test record demonstrates that he is comfortable in adapting to different conditions and we’re hopeful that he can make a good contribution between now and the end of the season."

Bravo currently averages 39.88 in Test cricket with two of his six half-centuries coming against India and he could feature in Nottinghamshire's four remaining LV= County Championship and three CB040 games this season.
