Middlesex have signed former West Indian left-arm fast bowler Pedro Collins to complement their bowling attack for the 2010 season.
The former Surrey player joins New Zealand international Iain O'Brien, newly-capped England paceman Steven Finn and experienced seamer Tim Murtagh in a strong attack.
“We are delighted to have secured the services of Pedro Collins," Middlesex Managing Director of Cricket Angus Fraser told the club's website (www.middlsexccc.com).
"Pedro will bolster Middlesex’s seam attack, bringing experience and variety to it. He has experience of bowling in English conditions and has had a very good domestic season in the Caribbean, in which he took 26 wickets at an average of only 17.53 for Barbados.
"We look forward to him joining up with the rest of the squad in mid April.”
Collins added: “I am delighted to be returning to England to play county cricket this summer.
"Playing at Lord's with West Indies was always a special experience and the thought of playing there for Middlesex with the home support on my side is very exciting.
"The Club have made some good signings this summer to complement a strong squad so I look forward to helping the club challenge for silverware.”
Collins played 32 Tests and 30 One-Day Internationals for the West Indies between 1999 and 2006.
