The slow left-arm unorthodox bowler was speaking at a cold Edgbaston after agreeing terms on a three-year contract.

“It’s fantastic for me,” said Lintott. “It’s a great opportunity and I’m really excited to be a part of things here – it’s a special place to play cricket.

“It’s exciting to be involved fully with a county and really invest in a county. I’m looking forward to playing all formats and I’m looking to develop all areas of my game.”
