The Perth Scorchers have moved a step closer to finalising its Big Bash League squad, announcing the signing of England batsman Michael Carberry for the fourth edition of the tournament.
Carberry’s signing leaves the reigning champions with just two spots left to fill on its 18-man roster.
The 34-year-old joins Pakistan paceman Yasir Arafat as Perth’s two international players.
“Justin Langer got in touch and said they’d love to have me on and I’m delighted and thrilled to get out there … it’s a fantastic opportunity,” he told the Scorchers’ website.
“I played there last year, obviously, with the Test match and I thought it was very well supported by the English fans as well as the Aussies fans.
“I’ve always enjoyed Perth; I’ve been there a few times as a young player as well on training camps or playing club cricket.
“To be back again and to play as a home will be fantastic.”
