Leicestershire have swelled their ranks for the NatWest T20 Blast with the signing of Ireland’s big-hitting all-rounder Kevin O’Brien.

O’Brien played all six matches in the recent World Cup campaign, but is still best known for his exploits in the 2011 tournament, when he thumped what remains the fastest century in the history of the competition to propel Ireland to a famous win over England. The 31-year-old will link up with brother Niall at Grace Road.
