Middlesex have signed Australia all-rounder Mitchell Marsh for their Vitality Blast campaign.
The 29-year-old, who has extensive experience in Australia’s Big Bash League and the Indian Premier League, was supposed to head to the club last season only for the coronavirus pandemic to scupper the venture.
But he is set to arrive at Lord’s in early June and will be available for the entirety of the group stages of the domestic Twenty20 competition, with the provision to extend his stay if Middlesex reach the knockout rounds.
