    Middlesex have confirmed the signing of South African fast bowler Kyle Abbott for their 2015 NatWest T20 Blast campaign.

    The 27-year-old has played three Tests, 15 ODI’s and eight Twenty20 internationals, who will join the English county club in May for seven matches, subject to clearance from Cricket South Africa.

    He is currently representing the Chennai Super Kings in the eighth season of the Indian Premier League.

    “I enjoyed my time in England last year immensely and I am looking forward to a new and exciting challenge with Middlesex,” Abbot said.

    “It is an honour to have signed for such an illustrious club.”

    Abbott, who has claimed 51 wickets in 56 T20 internationals at 28.72 will be the second overseas player for Middlesex, after the signing of Australian batsman Joe Burns.
