Former Proteas fast bowler Wayne Parnell has signed for Northamptonshire as an overseas player for the duration of the 2021 domestic UK season.
Parnell will join his new team in time for the upcoming summer season of cricket where he will be available for the County Championship, Royal London Cup and T20 Blast.
The left-armer signed a Kolpak deal with Worcestershire back in 2017 but with new regulations in place, Parnell will feature with overseas status.
‘I am delighted to be joining Northants for the 2021 season across all formats. I love county cricket and I hope I can contribute to the club being successful on all fronts,’ he said.
‘It’s an exciting squad with a really nice mix of youth and experience and I’m particularly looking forward to linking up with some old teammates in Richard Levi and Chris Liddle, who is now the bowling coach.’
