The Yorkshire County Cricket Club is delighted to confirm the acquisition of Lockie Ferguson for the 2021 Vitality Blast campaign.
New Zealand international Ferguson is expected to be available to play in all of the Vikings’ Vitality Blast North Group matches this summer subject to any international involvement.
The 29-year-old bowler, who made his international T20 debut in 2017, was one of the standout players in the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup, taking 21 wickets across the tournament, including three in the final against England.
A right-arm quick bowler, Ferguson will add another dimension to the Vikings’ bowling attack and add valuable experience to the Club’s promising bowlers.
Ferguson said: “I’m really excited to have signed for Yorkshire for the upcoming T20 Blast. I have really fond memories of my time in the county game back in 2018 and look forward to getting back over to the UK.
