Butler to play for Notts

5:43 am on 28 June 2013

The New Zealand pace bowler Ian Butler has been signed up by English County Cricket side Nottinghamshire for their Twenty20 competition.

Butler has played eight Tests, 26 ODIs and 18 T20Is for New Zealand and has taken 75 international wickets. He has previously represented Gloucestershire and Kent in T20s.

Butler will only be available for the T20 matches as the format allows fielding two overseas players, David Hussey being Nottinghamshire's other overseas player.

Kyle Mills, Nathan McCullum and Mitchell McClenaghan have all signed to play for English sides in the past week.
