New Zealand international star BJ Watling will join Lancashire Cricket Club for the first part of the 2020 County Championship season.

Watling has signed an overseas contract for the first nine games of the First-Class season, starting against Kent at Emirates Old Trafford in April and finishing at Northamptonshire in July.

The 34-year-old is the Blackcaps’ highest-scoring wicketkeeper in Test history and starred in the recent Test series against England, scoring a career-best 205 in the first match.

He recently passed the 3,500-run mark in Test cricket at an average of over 40, including eight centuries and 18 half-centuries.
