Lancashire have strengthened their bowling attack for the 2013 campaign by recruiting Kabir Ali

The right-arm fast-medium bowler arrives at Old Trafford from Hampshire and has signed a two-year deal with the Club.

Prior to joining the Rose Bowl outfit, Ali spent over ten seasons with Worcestershire where he received international recognition with England.

He took a career best of 8-50 against Lancashire in 2007 and has taken over 700 wickets since making his debut at New Road in 1999.

Cricket Director Mike Watkinson said: "We are pleased to bring in Kabir whose experience and proven track record in all forms of the game will be of great benefit to our bowling unit."

A delighted Ali added: “Lancashire is a fantastic Club with a proud history and great traditions. I am excited at the prospect of working under Peter Moores and his coaching team as well as playing alongside Glen Chapple who is still one of the best in the country.

“Lancashire has an exciting and emerging squad and I am looking forward to playing my part in the challenges ahead.”
