New Zealand's Matt Henry has been signed by Derbyshire for the NatWest T20 tournament in 2017.

Derbyshire have roped in New Zealand’s Matt Henry for the upcoming season of NatWest T20 Blast 2017. Along with him, they’ve also acquired the services of South Africa’s Imran Tahir.

Henry, who has been picked up by IPL franchise Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) for the forthcoming season, will feature for complete two months (July & August) for the county side.

Apart from the two well-known faces, the club has also roped in Ireland’s Garry Wilson while South Africans Hardus Viljoen and Daryn Smit have been added on Kolpak deals. On other hand, John Wright, former India and New Zealand coach, has been appointed Derbyshire’s coach for the tournament. Henry shared his pleasure on joining the side.

“I really enjoyed my time in England last year and I’m excited to be returning to represent Derbyshire. The county has some exciting plans in the NatWest T20 Blast under John Wright. They’re determined to improve and advance to the knockout stages, and I hope I can play my part in a successful campaign.”

The 25-year-old Henry has been New Zealand’s one of fine finds in limited-overs cricket, and has featured in almost every series since his debut. The right-arm pacer has played a total of 59 T20 games so far, with 52 wickets at an average of 29.25.
