Allrounder Jimmy Neesham has joined Black Caps teammate Adam Milne in signing a Twenty20 contract with English county Kent.

The 26-year-old has played 68 games for the Black Caps across all formats.

Kent coach Matt Walker says Neesham will add power to his line-up.

"Jimmy is an exciting cricketer: an explosive batter and a left-hander which will add some balance to our line-up," he said.

"He's an agile fielder and is a very useful bowler in the middle overs who we hope he will contribute in all three disciplines."

Neesham played in all three of New Zealand's group games in their failed Champions Trophy ODI campaign this month, where he struggled to make an impact.
