Zimbabwe captain Brendan Taylor will play in the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) 2012 after signing up with Chittagong Kings.
“We have just signed for Brendan to join the Chittagong Kings for the last three games and the finals in the BPL,” Taylor’s agent said.
“The deal was negotiated directly by us with the owner and CEO, Sameer Quader Chowdhury, of the Chittagong Kings.”
Chittagong are currently in third place, with eight points, two behind joint leaders, Khulna Royal Bengals and Duronto Rajshahi.
In 2011, Taylor became the first Zimbabwean batsman to hit back-to-back One-Day International centuries (128 not out and 107 not out), achieved against New Zealand in October.
He was selected to play Twenty20 cricket for the Wellington cricket team as an overseas player in New Zealand’s HRV Twenty20 Cup in December 2011.
Taylor has played 54 Twenty20s in which he has scored 1417 runs at an average of 31 and with a strike-rate of 122.04.
