Hampshire have signed Ruel Brathwaite till the end of next season
The 27 year old seamer was brought into the side for Hampshire’s ongoing LV= County Championship match against Northamptonshire after trialing for the Club.
He will be eligible to play the remainder of this season’s LV=CC matches but not in the Yorkshire Bank 40 competition for the Royals. In 2014, he will be available for all formats.
Brathwaite said; "I'm absolutely delighted to sign for Hampshire and excited by the prospect of evolving my game under the leadership of Giles White.
“The Royals possess a supremely talented squad of cricketers, which makes them one of the leading Counties in the circuit, so I simply couldn't refuse the opportunity to represent this Club going into 2014."
Though born and raised in Barbados, Brathwaite has resided in the country long enough to qualify as English and, therefore, does not count as an overseas player.
