English county cricket side Worcestershire have signed Australia international John Hastings as their overseas player for the 2017 campaign.

The 30-year-old allrounder, who has made 29 appearances for his country, has experience in county cricket following two successful seasons at Durham.

Worcestershire director of cricket Steve Rhodes said: "John will give us a little bit of pace with the new ball. He is a competitive character on the field but a champion of a bloke in the dressing room.

"He is someone I feel will really help our youngsters. He is a winner and a tough competitor."

Hastings, who has also played in the BBL and Indian Premier League, said: "I am already looking forward to next summer and linking up with a club who are developing such an exciting group of young players.

"If I can help in any way with that development, I will be delighted."
