Worcestershire sign NZ duo

Worcestershire have signed New Zealand duo Colin Munro and Mitchell McClenaghan for part of the 2014 campaign.

Batsman Munro and left arm paceman McClenaghan have been part of the New Zealand squad competing in the ICC World Twenty20 tournament in Bangladesh.

Munro will be Worcestershire's second overseas player for the entire span of the NatWest T20 Blast from mid-May until August alongside Pakistani spinner Saeed Ajmal.

Director of cricket Steve Rhodes said: "Both Colin and Mitch played in the ICC World Twenty and both have real match winning pedigrees.

"I am really looking forward to working with them."

Munro said: "I am really excited and delighted to have the opportunity to join Worcestershire for the re-vamped NatWest T20 Blast competition and look forward to putting in some match winning performances."

McClenaghan added: "The opportunity to play all three forms of the game over my six week stint will hopefully allow me to make a difference at an important time of the year."
