Tasmania sign Ryan ten Doeschate for T20

Sydney: Dutch allrounder Ryan ten Doeschate has been signed by Tasmania to play in Australia`s Twenty20 Big Bash this season, officials said.

South African-born ten Doeschate, 30, will join Pakistan`s Rana Naved-ul-Hasan as Tasmania`s two international players this season, team coach Tim Coyle said.

Coyle said ten Doeschate, a regular with English county Essex, had an impressive record with both bat and ball.

"His credentials suit what we need perfectly," Coyle told reporters.

"He`s an attacking, hard-hitting player who clears the boundary regularly, a very handy bowler and an excellent fieldsman."

The Twenty20 Big Bash runs from December 30 to the final on February 5.
