South Australian seamer looking forward to testing himself in English conditions after signing a county deal

Australia seamer Daniel Worrall has signed for English county side Gloucestershire from the start of the county season until July 2.

The 26-year-old, who has played three one-day internationals for his country, will be available to feature in the County Championship as well as the entire domestic one-day cup season.

Worrall said: "It has been a long held ambition of mine to play county cricket and I am grateful to Gloucestershire for providing me with a chance to do that.

"I have heard only positive things about the potential of the squad being developed at Bristol and look forward to contributing to a successful 2018."

Worrall, who has played for Melbourne Stars and South Australia, added: "I believe that I will be suited to bowling well in English conditions and I can't wait to get started."

Gloucestershire coach Richard Dawson said: "Dan bowls a full length with decent pace and has good one day skills.

"He will add depth and experience to our bowling attack for the start of the season. We're all looking forward to having him here in Bristol."
