Mills joins Middlesex for t20s

Middlesex have signed New Zealand opening bowler Kyle Mills for their Friends Life t20 campaign, which features three matches at Lord's.

Experienced seamer Mills joins Adam Voges as the club's second overseas player for the competition and will join up with the county after New Zealand's two-match t20 series against England.

The 34-year-old will be available for the Panthers' opening fixture of the tournament against Kent Spitfires on Friday 28 June.

Mills has played 35 t20 internationals and 153 ODIs and has been in the UK since May as part of the Black Caps limited overs squads for series' against England as well as the Champions Trophy.

He was particularly impressive in the Champions Trophy, picking us six cheap wickets in three matches.

Middlesex Director of Cricket Angus Fraser said Mills would add extra quality to his current seam attack, as well as sharing the workload across their already potent seam attack as they see to keep their LV= County Championship title challenge on track.

"There are several reasons why Kyle is a good and exciting signing for Middlesex CCC," said the former England seamer.

"During the recent Champions Trophy he highlighted what a high quality white ball bowler he is by topping the tournament averages and having one of the best economy rates.

"Kyle will bring experience and quality to our attack, with his presence also allowing the club to manage the workload of a bowling attack that is competing in all three domestic tournaments.

"This season we play two LV=CC matches in the middle of our t20 campaign and, ideally, we want to keep our fast bowers as fresh as we can. At the moment we have two or three bowlers who are either injured or recovering from injury."

Middlesex play three t20 group matches at Lord's this summer. Book online now and save £5 on the gate price.
