Yeah just seen. Didn't know they was going to be an announcement. Another option with the gloves in the shorter formats

As long as he avoids selection for the 50 over competition he should be available throughout the summer.

Regardless of quality the number 1 priority was an overseas player to be regularly available.

He's currently batting 5 for Australia.

Sounds like he will be keeping in one dayers. Means Hodd will be keeper for CC. Sounds quite a logical move under the circumstances.

I don't know what his ambitions are regarding wicketkeeper but why couldn't he keep in the CC? Australia struggling for a keeper at the moment with Wade and Neville so there could be a more permanent place in the side in a Bairstow type role.

Hope we've signed a gem. I haven't been watching the current Aus v Pak matches but will watch the next one to have a look at our boy.

He's done well in the two matches so far.

Looks a decent Championship signing.

Need a couple more T20 options though.

I see he played against us, for Leics 2nd XI, in 2011.

Of our current staff, Lyth, Lees and Wainman played in that game, which resulted in a tie. I wonder if they remember him?
