Hampshire have signed Australian fast-bowler Nathan Rimmington for the NatWest T20 Blast on a match-by-match contract.

The 31-year old, replaces the departing Kyle Abbott.

He is in the squad for tomorrow’s vital NatWest T20 Blast match against Middlesex Panthers at The Ageas Bowl.

Abbott has joined the South-Africa Test squad but he is expected to return later on this season.

Rimmington, who featured for the Melbourne Renegades in the 2014 Australian Big Bash, has an impressive domestic T20 record, averaging 20.45 with the ball in 51 matches.
