Kent sign Mohammad Nabi for 2020 T20 Blast campaign

Mohammad Nabi will return to Kent next summer to play in the T20 Blast.

Nabi featured in nine T20 games for the Spitfires last summer, scoring 147 runs at a strike rate of 153.12 - including a stunning 12-ball 43 not out against Surrey at The Oval.

The 34-year-old also took eight wickets with an economy rate of 7.22.

Speaking in August, Kent coach Matt Walker said he'd welcome Nabi back at the St Lawrence ground.

"I think we've been very lucky in getting the right type of person and Mohammad definitely fell into that category," added Walker.

"He was exactly what we needed from a playing point of view, a spinning all-rounder, and someone who can dominate with the bat."

The Afghanistan international plays in various franchise leagues around the world, including Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Indian Premier League and Melbourne Renegades in Australia's Big Bash League.

He was picked in the The Hundred draft last month by London Spirit, where he will play alongside Kent's Joe Denly and Zak Crawley.

Nabi said: “I very much enjoyed my first season with Kent and I am pleased to be coming back for another year. There’s lots of quality in the team so hopefully we can do well.”
