Carlos Brathwaite, the man famous for wrecking England’s World T20 dream in 2016, will join Kent later this summer.
The 29-year-old all rounder will play the first four of the county’s Vitality Blast matches starting in July.
He is famous for hitting four straight sixes off Ben Stokes in the final of the 2016 T20 World Cup.

It will be Brathwaite’s first foray into the county game. He will join Kent ahead of their T20 opener against Surrey at The Oval on Friday, July 6.
Unfortunately, cricket fans hoping to see Brathwaite at the St Lawrence Ground in Canterbury will be disappointed.
Kent are on the road for the first three matches of the tournament and then play their first home fixture – and Brathwaite’s fourth – in Beckenham.
Kent’s first T20 match at Canterbury is against Surrey on Friday, July 20 starting at 7pm.
