Derbyshire have signed Mark Watt for the 2022 T20 Blast campaign.

The 25 year-old returns for the second time, having taken seven T20 wickets in 2019, including best-figures of 4-19 against Yorkshire to help Derbyshire reach Finals Day for the first time.

The left-arm spinner has played in 47 T20 matches for Scotland, claiming 56 wickets at an average of 20.78, with his best international figures of 5-27 coming against Netherlands in 2016, while he has claimed three wickets or more in an international T20 innings on seven occasions.

Head of Cricket, Mickey Arthur, told the Derbyshire CCC website: We have been looking for a left-arm spinner to mix up our bowling in T20 and Mark ticks all of the boxes for us.

He will bring a different quality to our attack and, with Shan Masood and Suranga Lakmal also in the squad, we will have a good amount of international experience on the field at all times.

Watt added: I enjoyed my time with Derbyshire previously and the chance to work with Mickey was simply too good to turn down.

Ive worked hard on my game in the last couple of years, Ive tested myself against some of the best players in the world and Ive been able to show what I can do."
