Lancashire have boosted their promotion chances after completing the signing of former Zimbabwe seamer Kyle Jarvis.

The 24-year-old arrives as a non-overseas player after penning a three-year contract and is looking forward to spearheading the Lancs attack for many years to come.

Jarvis has turned his back on his home country after taking 30 wickets in eight Test matches, and has set his sights on eventually playing for England once he qualifies for selection.

“I am delighted to be joining Lancashire on a three-year contract,” he told Lancashire’s official website.

“Playing county cricket has been an ambition of mine for a number of years and the opportunity to forge a career in England was one that was too good to miss.

“My future is with Lancashire and in the county game with an end goal of potentially becoming English qualified in the future.”

Meanwhile, Lancashire cricket director, Mike Watkinson says he is delighted with the capture and believes he is a star of the future.

“The opportunity to sign someone of Kyle’s age and potential does not arise very often, and we feel he will be a great addition to our bowling attack for many years to come,” he said.

Lancashire have revealed he will be arriving in the ‘near future’ but it remains to be seen when he will make his debut for the Red Rose.
