Notts sign India spinner Ashwin

Ravichandran Ashwin will join Nottinghamshire for the second half of the County Championship season.

The India spinner, their fourth highest Test wicket-taker of all time, will link up with his new team-mates in time for the home match with Essex at Trent Bridge starting on June 30.

He will also feature against Somerset and Surrey, before missing the match with Yorkshire because of his India commitments. Ashwin is expected to be back for the last three matches of the Championship season versus Kent, Warwickshire and Surrey.

"I'm really looking forward to joining up with Nottinghamshire, to playing cricket at an iconic venue like Trent Bridge and hopefully contributing to some County Championship victories," Ashwin told Notts' official website.

"I enjoyed my previous stint in England with Worcestershire. It's a good, competitive standard of cricket over there and I can't wait to get started."
