New Zealand fast bowler Tim Southee has been signed up by the Chennai Super Kings to replace injured Australian Ben Hilfenhaus ahead of the fourth season of the Indian Premier League.

Southee, 22, enjoyed an excellent 2011 World Cup, taking 18 wickets as New Zealand reached the semi-finals and his performances have earned him his chance in the IPL.

Reigning champions Chennai begin the tournament when they take on Kolkata Knight Riders on 8th April - making Chennai 4/6 favourites for the match with Kolkata at 6/5.
