West Indies all-rounder, Kyle Mayers has joined Birmingham Bears in England’s T20 Blast, after signing with the West Midlands team for the last three games of the season.
He will line up against Worcestershire an will also be in the line up in the reverse fixture a week later at Edgbaston, before capping off his campaign against Northants Steelbacks on July 18.
Mayers, an attacking left-hander who bowls medium pace, has already represented West Indies in all three formats but has become more of a fixture in the Test side, where he averages 47 from six Tests and has taken 10 wickets.
He made a stunning entry to the longest format, striking an unbeaten 210 against Bangladesh in the opening Test in Chattogram last February, to earn West Indies a sensational final day victory.
Mayers also turns out for his native Barbados in the Caribbean Premier League and is part of the squad for this year’s edition which gets underway in August in St. Kitts and Nevis.
