Australia fast bowler Kane Richardson has signed to play for Derbyshire in this season's Vitality Blast, the county have announced.

The 28-year-old, who recently won the Big Bash League with Melbourne Renegades and was the tournament's leading wicket-taker, will be available throughout the tournament.

Derbyshire are the only county never to have reached Finals Day, but Richardson is eager to fire his new side into the latter stages.

"I've been lucky to play in T20 tournaments around the world, but this will be my first experience of the Vitality Blast and I'm looking forward to getting going," Richardson told the club website.

"Derbyshire are an ambitious club who have been progressing well in the last few seasons, so hopefully I can contribute towards some wins and get Derbyshire towards the knockout stages."
