He will join up with the Bears after the Indian Premier League in April and May
Birmingham Bears have signed Australian batter Glenn Maxwell for their forthcoming Vitality Blast campaign.
The 34-year-old, who has been recovering from a broken leg suffered late last year, is one of the most destructive hitters in the game.
Maxwell will join up with the Bears following the Indian Premier League in April and May and is the club’s second overseas signing after Pakistan pace bowler Hassan Ali.
First-team coach Mark Robinson said on edgbaston.com: “It’s an amazing signing – he’s one of the fastest scorers in world cricket – and I’m sure he’ll be a favourite with Bears fans.
“I’m also delighted for our fans. We’ve now got a really exciting Blast squad that I’m sure will provide great entertainment and help us achieve our goal of again getting to Blast Finals Day here at Edgbaston.”
Maxwell added: “I can’t wait to get stuck into a new challenge with the Bears. Edgbaston is a great place to play cricket with extremely passionate fans and I’m looking forward to joining an exciting list of players.”
