Somerset have signed Australia wicketkeeper-batsman Matthew Wade for part of the 2020 season.
The 31-year-old, whose move is subject to the club obtaining a no objection certificate and appropriate visa, will be available for Somerset’s opening seven County Championship fixtures.

Wade, who has played 30 Tests for Australia, said: “It’s an exciting challenge and one that I’m looking forward to.
“I got a good taste of English conditions last summer and it’ll be good to come back over and to hopefully contribute to Somerset winning matches in the County Championship.
“Somerset have got a excellent squad and I’m looking forward to meeting up with the guys and to getting out on the pitch with them.

“I’m told that Somerset have a bit of a history of Australian players doing well for the club, so hopefully I can add my name to that list.”
Mark Wood is an all-rounder now.
The verdict is in on Ben Stokes.
Numbers from 3 all the way up to 500,000!
Very sweary stuff from Ben Stokes.
Runs for the openers before the collapse came.
England looking to press home the advantage.
Looks like Wood *and* Archer at the Wanderers.
Bavuma in. Hamza out. Van der Dussen up to three.
No solution to a problem that doesn’t exist.
England could go all in on pace in Joburg.
