The Birmingham Bears have confirmed the signing of New Zealand wicketkeeper for the T20 Blast competition, making him the second Kiwi player at Edgbaston this season.
The 34-year-old Ronchi, who played for the Black Caps at the recent World T20, will join compatriot Jeetan Patel at the Bears for their T20 assault.
A powerful hitter in the middle-order, Ronchi has played 29 T20Is while he has also represented the Perth Scorchers in the Big Bash League, in Australia, and Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League.
Ronchi said: "Birmingham Bears have been one of the top teams in T20 over the last two years and I'm very excited to join such a great club that boasts several internationals."
Director of cricket Dougie Brown said:"Luke has played in the biggest limited overs competitions in the world and he is widely recognised as one of the finest wicketkeeper-batsmen in the game.
"His power and ability to consistently hit boundaries will bolster our middle-order batting line-up and I am sure that his performances will also be great entertainment for our fans at Edgbaston."
