Leicestershire sign Hampshire batsman Michael Carberry on loan

Former England batsman Michael Carberry has joined Leicestershire on loan from Hampshire for the final four matches of the County Championship season.

Carberry, 36, will play for Pierre de Bruyn’s team against Kent next week, before returning to Hampshire for T20 Blast Finals Day on 2 September.

He will then return to Leicestershire for their final three matches.

“It’s great to have Michael on board with us ahead of the Kent game,” said head coach De Bruyn. “Michael has an impressive career record in county cricket and offers lots of experience having also represented England.”

Carberry has played in six Tests and six one-day internationals for England.

Carberry has scored 13,616 runs at an impressive average of 42.02 in a 300-game first-class career, with 300 not out being his highest score.

He has recorded 35 first-class centuries and Carberry has played 13 times for England, including six test matches, six ODIs and a T20I.

Hampshire CCC Director of Cricket Giles White added: “Michael is obviously keen to play regular red ball cricket and will have this opportunity at Leicester. We wish him well and look forward to welcoming him back for Finals Day.”
