Cape Town - The Cape Cobras are expected to announce the signing of West Indian spinner Sunil Narine, a report on Die Burger's website indicates.

The Cobras are expected make the announcement public later on Tuesday.

The 25-year-old, who currently plays for Trinidad & Tobago in the Champions League T20, is expected to play T20 cricket for the Cobras this season.

He took 2/23 in four overs when Trinidad & Tobago beat the Titans on the Duckworth/Lewis method in Ahmedabad on Monday.

Narine was also the star for the West Indies when they won last year's T20 World Cup in Sri Lanka when he took 3/9 in the final to stun the hosts.

His overall T20 first class record is equally impressive, having taken 93 wickets at an average 15.86 and conceding only 5.40 runs per over.
