Carlos Brathwaite signs for Birmingham Bears for T20 Blast


West Indies allrounder is likely to be club’s only overseas player for the competition

Birmingham Bears have announced the signing of Carlos Brathwaite for their T20 Blast campaign.

Brathwaite, who recently won the Big Bash League as part of the Sydney Sixers side and is currently playing for Multan Sultans in the Pakistan Super League, is likely to be available for the full group stage. However, he is likely to be unavailable for the knockout stages of the Blast – if the Bears qualify – due to a clash with the Caribbean Premier League.

He is likely to be the club’s only overseas player for the T20 season after the signing of Danny Briggs at the end of last season and with Jake Lintott, the left-arm wristspinner, recently signing his first professional deal. The Bears have fielded Jeetan Patel as an overseas player for a number of years, while Chris Green had been lined up to return in 2020 but looks unlikely to do so in 2021.
