Warwickshire County Cricket Club has bolstered its bowling attack for the Vitality Blast with the addition of slow left-arm unorthodox bowler Jake Lintott.

Lintott (27) has been training with the Bears since 2019 after spells with Hampshire and Gloucestershire, and he has made Vitality Blast appearance for both counties.

“As a left-arm wrist spinner, Jake offers us something completely different and having variety within a bowling attack is key for a successful T20 campaign.

“He impressed in the Second XI games that he played for us last summer and we’ve enjoyed having him within the squad over the last few months.

“Jake is a potential match winner and will come into the squad for tomorrow’s Vitality Blast match away to Glamorgan.”

The Bears were due to open the Vitality Blast last night at home to Somerset, but heavy rain led to the fixture being abandoned. They will travel to Cardiff tomorrow with subsequent fixtures away to Northants Steelbacks on Tuesday, at home to Gloucestershire on Wednesday and away to Somerset on Friday.
