Nottinghamshire have completed the capture of the Netherlands-born Australian pace bowler Dirk Nannes for next year's Twenty20 campaign.

The 33-year-old has a wealth of experience having starred for Delhi Daredevils, Middlesex and Victoria in the past.

Notts' director of cricket Mick Newell is delighted with the county's latest acquisition, saying: "I regard Dirk as the most effective Twenty20 bowler in the world.

"He will be a great addition to our attack given his wealth of experience.

"The likes of Ali Brown, David Hussey, Samit Patel, Alex Hales and Chris Read will give provide good depth to our Twenty20 batting line-up so bolstering the bowling unit was always going to be the priority when we were considering our recruitment plans.

"Dirk has got good pace, he can bowl left-arm around the wicket and he bowls a good yorker, which will come into play at the end of the innings.

"His achievements in the IPL underline his pedigree and we're signing him at the peak of his powers."
