The 29-year-old all-rounder is the top wicket-taker in the tournament with eight wickets for the Spitfires in three matches to date.

Kent’s new number 26 rose to fame by smashing four successive sixes to win the 2016 ICC World T20 Final in the final over against England in India.

The second overseas spot in the side will then be filled by Australia all-rounder Marcus Stoinis who is set to make his Spitfires debut against Sussex Sharks on Friday 27 July (7pm) at The Spitfire Ground.
