New Zealand and has also played in 14 Test matches and 15 one-day

Australia, taking superb figures of six for 11 in his last game against Sydney
Thunder in January.
"Ish is a young player whose game has really moved
forward," said Nottinghamshire head coach Peter Moores in a press release.
"He's growing fast and we're really excited to have
him. He's not been to England before, so he is an unknown quantity for our
opposition and we've seen the impact leg-spinners can have in T20

available to Notts for the entirety of the Blast, which is due to run from July
7 to September 2.
