Northamptonshire have signed experienced all-rounder Ian Harvey for the duration of the Twenty20 Cup.

"We have been fortunate to secure Ian's services during the Twenty20 period. His proven track record shows he is one of the most outstanding performers of Twenty20."
David Capel Quotes of the week

The 37-year-old former Australian international joins the Steelbacks as David Sales, Stephen Peters and Steven Crook are out injured, while Niall O'Brien is on international duty with Ireland.

He brings a wealth of experience to Wantage Road having had spells at Yorkshire, Gloucestershire, Derbyshire and Hampshire as well as representing ICL outfit Chennai Superstars.

Welcoming his new challenge, Harvey told the county's official website: "I'm excited about this opportunity to return to Twenty20 cricket, where I still feel I have a lot to offer as a player and in passing on my experience to the young, talented players here."

Fortunate

Northamptonshire coach David Capel added: "We have been fortunate to secure Ian's services during the Twenty20 period.

"His proven track record shows he is one of the most outstanding performers of Twenty20.

"Our younger players have a great opportunity to learn from one of Twenty20's record-making batsman and a proven matchwinner with the ball in one-day cricket."
