“Ashley gives us another spin option. He has been playing some league cricket in England, so he comes fresh to us from there. Dwayne Bravo was very keen to get him into the squad given that we have still got some big games coming up against St Kitts & Nevis Patriots, Jamaica Tallawahs and Barbados Tridents. He will have a big role to play giving us another spin option,” said Head Coach Simon Katich.
