Australian Chris Rogers has arrived in England and is ready to begin his second season as an overseas player with Derbyshire.
The opening batsman, once-capped by his country, had faced a delay due to visa problems but he arrived in the country this morning (8th May).
Rogers scored 1,372 first-class runs at 57.16 in 2008, earning a Test cap for in 2008 at Perth.
Derbyshire Chief Executive Keith Loring said: "It has been a long and frustrating exercise in helping Chris obtain his visa, after it had originally been turned down on a technicality but that is behind us now and we are delighted that Chris is with us."
Rogers will now take over as captain of the side.
