The 21-year-old had played in one Test, 18 one-day internationals and six Twenty20s for Zimbabwe, taking 27 wickets across the three formats.

"I've come here to chase my dreams. I want to perform and achieve. I just can't wait to get started," he said.

"He's got a lot to learn and he knows it, but we're looking forward to helping him achieve his potential over the next few years."
