New Zealand duo Colin Munro and Mitchell McClenaghan will represent Worcestershire for a portion of the 2014 domestic campaign.

Top order batsman Munro will be the second overseas player at New Road for the duration of the NatWest T20 Blast alongside Pakistani spinner Saeed Ajmal.

Left arm paceman McClenaghan will only represent the county over a six-week period, although he will feature in all three forms of the game for the Pears.

"Both Colin and Mitch played in the ICC World Twenty and both have real match winning pedigrees," Worcestershire Director of cricket Steve Rhodes said.

"I am really looking forward to working with them."

Munro said: "I am really excited and delighted to have the opportunity to join Worcestershire for the re-vamped NatWest T20 Blast competition and look forward to putting in some match winning performances."

McClenaghan added: "The opportunity to play all three forms of the game over my six week stint will hopefully allow me to make a difference at an important time of the year."
