London - Nottinghamshire have secured the services of New Zealand leg-spinner Ish Sodhi for this year's T20 Blast tournament, the English county announced on Monday.

Sodhi, 24, has taken 21 wickets in 12 T20 internationals for New Zealand and has also played in 14 Test matches and 15 one-day internationals.

He starred for Adelaide Strikers in the recent Big Bash in Australia, taking superb figures of six for 11 in his last game against Sydney Thunder in January.

"Ish is a young player whose game has really moved forward," said Nottinghamshire head coach Peter Moores in a press release.

"He's growing fast and we're really excited to have him. He's not been to England before, so he is an unknown quantity for our opposition and we've seen the impact leg-spinners can have in T20 cricket."

Both Sodhi and Australian all-rounder Dan Christian will be available to Notts for the entirety of the Blast, which is due to run from July 7 to September 2.
