Durham have signed Australia’s Peter Handscomb for the remainder of the season, with the wicketkeeper to play in all three formats.
The 28-year-old featured in the World Cup after being called up as an injury replacement for Shaun Marsh.
Handscomb, who has played 16 Tests and 22 one-day internationals, made just four from 12 balls in Australia’s semi-final defeat by England at Edgbaston.
Durham director of cricket Marcus North said: “He will add something extra.”
Handscomb, who has previously played in county cricket for Gloucestershire and Yorkshire, replaces compatriot Cameron Bancroft at Durham following the latter’s Ashes call-up.
