West Indies all-rounder Darren Sammy has joined the T20 Blast competition in the UK, signing with Glamorgan until July when he will go to the Caribbean Premier League.

Sammy, who captained the Windies to the World T20 title two years ago, was announced as an overseas signing for the Welsh side on Tuesday, and will be part of the team to take on Sussex Sharks on Friday in Cardiff.

Glamorgan head coach Toby Radford, who worked with the Windies at the World Twenty20 in 2012, enthused: "Darren is top-quality T20 player and a fine addition to our dressing room as he brings with him experience at the highest level.

"Darren was a leader on and off the field during my days with the West Indies, so it will be great to work with him again at Glamorgan."

ECB director Hugh Morris added: "Darren's skills with bat and ball have delighted crowds all around the world in Twenty20 competitions in recent years so we're delighted to welcome him to Glamorgan.

"Darren arrives fresh from the Sunrisers Hyderabad franchise in the Indian Premier League, whom he captained and Glamorgan supporters will get an opportunity to see the all-rounder display his skills as he joins us ahead of Friday's first home game against Sussex Sharks."
