The Barbadian all-rounder Carlos Brathwaite joined Birmingham Bears for their T20 Blast campaign.
Birmingham Bears's director Paul Farbrace announced the joining of Brathwaite. He said, "Carlos is an outstanding addition to our team. I was part of the England coaching team in 2016 when Carlos' four successive sixes changed the ICC T20 World Cup final, so I am well aware of his capabilities. I am just glad that we will have the benefits of his qualities now that he's signed for the Bears."
Brathwaite is also excited to join the Bears and to make Edgbaston his home this summer. "I have heard a lot about the atmosphere and the big T20 crowds that come to Edgbaston to watch the Bears. I cannot wait to get started this summer in the Blast." He further added, "I know that the team went very close to reaching the quarter-finals last year, but we have got a lot of young talent in this squad and I am hoping that we can push on further this year. Getting to Finals Day at our home ground would be fantastic."
Brathwaite is currently playing in the Pakistan Super League with Multan Sultans and has played in all premier T20 tournaments,the Indian Premier League, the Big Bash, the Caribbean Premier League and Bangladesh Premier League and many more.
