County side Nottinghamshire has roped in Windies opening batsman Kraigg Braithwaite for the remaining five matches of the ongoing county championship. Braithwaite will play the county side's next game against Hampshire on Sunday (August 19). The county side then plays Surrey at The Kia Oval before three home games against Yorkshire, Essex and Somerset at Trent Bridge.

"I'm excited about getting going at this great club and hopefully I can help the side push for the Championship title in the run-in," Brathwaite said. "Being able to call Trent Bridge home for a few weeks will be a great feeling and I'll be looking to give my best for the team across the final five games."

"Testing myself in English conditions will develop my game and I'm hoping to continue my good form with the bat, starting on Sunday."

"Kraigg will bring great experience to the side having played nearly 50 Test matches and we hope he can continue his form on these shores," said Mick Newell, Nottinghamshire's Director of Cricket.

"Put simply, he adds quality and depth and we're hopeful that he can make contributions in the final weeks of the season," Newell added
