West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo is set to join Middlesex for six Vitality Blast matches this summer.

Bravo hopes to make his Middlesex debut in the London derby against Surrey at Lord's on July 5, subject to completion of his visa and no-objection certificate, and feature in five more fixtures until the end of the month.

The Trinidadian, 34, is a sought-after force in Twenty20 cricket especially - having twice won the world title with the West Indies and a regular at the Indian and Caribbean premier leagues among other high-profile domestic tournaments.

He finished as the joint highest wicket-taker in the most recent edition of Australia's Big Bash League.

Bravo, currently in IPL action with the Chennai Super Kings, has also previously played for Kent and Essex.

Middlesex managing director of cricket Angus Fraser said: "Dwayne is one of the most exciting and best T20 players in the world.

"He can win games of cricket with bat or ball. He may only be available for six games, but I expect him to have an impact in a number of these matches.

"I'm sure he is a player the huge Lord's crowds will enjoy watching."

Bravo added: "I've been fortunate enough throughout my career to have played all round the world, and Lord's is a place that really excites me.

"I have no hesitation committing to Middlesex for six games of the Vitality Blast and am looking forward to joining Dan Vettori's squad at the start of July."
