Kiwis Are Coming to Town!


Northants Cricket is delighted to announce the signing of two New Zealand International bowlers for the remainder of the summer.

Northants have signed Kiwi pacemen Ian Butler and Neil Wagner to bolster the County's strikeforce this summer.

Ian Butler joins the club with immediate effect and will be available in both forms of the game until late July. Butler has experience in the County game with both Gloucestershire and Nottinghamshire. Ian is a right arm Fast Medium Bowler and has played both Test Match and One-Day cricket for New Zealand.

Neil Wagner will join the club for the final five LV= County Championship matches of the season. Wagner is a Left Arm Medium Fast Bowler and has an excellent reputation and record in both domestic and International cricket. He will join us after the New Zealand Tour to the West Indies.

Both players play for Cricket Otago in New Zealand and we are delighted that they have both decided to join Northants Cricket.
