The West Indian batsman has been signed for at least one season. Meanwhile, in Brisbane, Australia, yesterday New Zealand held out for a 10-run World Series Cup victory over South Africa. Set 257 to win, the South Africans were given a revised total of 229 from 39 overs to chase after an hour's delay for rain and fell short after failing to hit the required 15 runs in the final over.
