Lancashire have signed New Zealand batsman Lou Vincent as their replacement overseas player for the upcoming Twenty20 Cup.

Vincent has been playing for Ramsbottom in the Lancashire League and had recently participated in the unofficial Indian Cricket League. His signing is still subject to a work permit and registration. "I'm delighted to get the opportunity to play in the Twenty20 Cup for Lancashire," Vincent said. "Twenty20 is a format which suits my game, and I can't wait to play my part in a successful campaign for the club."

Lancashire's original overseas player Brad Hodge will be on international duty with Australia until the end of their tour of the Caribbean (July 6) while Mohammad Yousuf is with the Pakistan national team for a tri-series in Bangladesh.

"We are about to start a very important Twenty20 competition and we have bought in a player with a great reputation in the format who will add firepower to our top order," Lancashire's cricket manager Mike Watkinson said. "He is an exciting player and excellent fielder, just what we need for Twenty20 cricket."

Vincent has played 23 Tests and 102 one-day internationals and has also had a county stint with Worcestershire in 2006.
