ESPNcricinfo staff

Darren Bravo, the West Indies batsman, has joined Nottinghamshire for the remainder of the season as a replacement for David Hussey and Adam Voges.

Bravo, the half-brother of allrounder Dwayne, will go straight into the squad for Friday's CB40 match against Glamorgan after Nottinghamshire undertook an extensive search.

"We scoured the world to find an overseas batsman to reinforce our top order and we felt that Darren was a player who was worth pursuing," Mick Newell, the director of cricket, said. "He has an excellent record for a 22-year-old batsman and we feel that he is a player who has the hunger to succeed in county cricket.

"His Test record demonstrates that he is comfortable in adapting to different conditions and we're hopeful that he can make a good contribution between now and the end of the season."
