Daniel Worrall played three ODIs for Australia in 2016

Gloucestershire have signed Australia bowler Daniel Worrall as their overseas player for part of the 2018 season.

The 26-year-old seamer, who has played three one-day internationals, will be eligible for the County Championship and One-Day Cup.

He will be with Gloucestershire from the start of the campaign until 2 July.

“I believe that I will be suited to bowling well in English conditions and I can’t wait to get started,” Worrall told Gloucestershire’s website.

“It’s 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.”

Head coach Richard Dawson said: “He 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.”

Worrall has taken 115 wickets at an average of 31.17
