Zimbabwe test skipper Brendan Taylor may play his last game for Zimbabwe on Saturday

Nottinghamshire have signed Zimbabwe Test captain Brendan Taylor as a Kolpak player, subject to approval from the England and Wales Cricket Board. The agreement means Taylor will be retiring from international cricket at the end of the current World Cup being held in Australia and New Zealand. It shall surely mean match against India shall be his last match as a Zimbabwe player.

Taylor has scored 1,493 Test runs, including four centuries, at an average of 34.72, in 23 appearances.

He has also played 166 one-day internationals and 26 T20I matches.

The club said it would "discuss specific arrangements" with the 29-year-old batsman at the conclusion of the World Cup. Notts will be without Michael Lumb and Jake Libby for the start of the new season.

"We have found ourselves with two batsmen injured and face the potential loss of players to international commitments," said director of cricket Mick Newell.

"We have decided to strengthen our batting order with Brendan, a proven player who will be an excellent addition to the side."
