New Zealand fast bowler Adam Milne signed for the second half of the Eagles’ NatWest T20 Blast Group Stage campaign in 2016. Milne will join the team at the end of June, and feature in seven T20 Blast clashes.

Milne’s main attribute is his express pace, which has seen him pick up 58 wickets in all Twenty20 cricket at an average of 24.00. The 23 year old made his Twenty20 debut for his country in 2010, and has gone on to play 14 T20Is. A key figure in Limited Overs cricket for the Black Caps, Milne has a Twenty20 International bowling average of 20.83. His best Twenty20 figures, of 4/37, were achieved against Pakistan on January 15 this year.

Head Coach Chris Silverwood commented at the time of the signing; “Adam is a young bowler with plenty of international experience already. He is exactly what we were looking for from an overseas player, with his real pace offering something different to our attack.”
