Northamptonshire has signed West Indies captain Jason Holder for the first month of the 2019 county season.

The all-rounder can play in Northants' first two division two games and opening six one-day cup matches.

Holder led the Windies to a series win over England, but is banned for the third test because of his side's slow over-rate in Antigua.

In 37 tests holder has scored 1,783 runs at an average of 33.64, and taken 93 wickets at 27.69.

He was named man of the match at Kensington Oval after making an unbeaten 202 and taking two wickets in their 381-run win in the first test.

His move is subject to a no objection certificate being issued by Cricket West Indies and will see the fast bowler play in England for the first time before this summer's world cup.
