“I love playing cricket in England and no doubt will enjoy the 2020 summer with the Hampshire players, coaches, members and supporters,” he added.

Giles White, Director of Hampshire Cricket, said: “Nathan is a really high-class spinner and we identified him in the summer as someone who would be a great addition to our Championship side.”

“He has a real appetite for county cricket and is keen to be a part of what we’re trying to do here, so we’re delighted to secure his signature and we can’t wait to have him on board next summer,” he added.
