Sussex snap up Hastings
Australia pace bowler John Hastings has agreed to join Sussex as their second overseas player for this summer's Friends Life T20 tournament.
The Sharks had already announced New Zealand all-rounder Scott Styris as one of their allowed players, and on Thursday morning named Hastings as the second.
The 27-year-old has been capped by Australia in all three formats of the game, and recently impressed for the Baggy Green's A side against their English counterparts.
"I'm really looking forward to getting over to Sussex and joining up with the Sharks, as well as meeting everyone at the club. I can't wait for the opportunity to help the team in going one step further this season," he said of Sussex, semi-finalists in 2012.
"It has always been a huge goal of mine to play in an English summer, and I couldn't be happier about my upcoming time at Sussex."
