    Gloucestershire has signed West Indies paceman Jerome Taylor on a three-year deal, to play in all forms of the game.

    The 35-year-old, who was a member of the Windies’ 2016 World T20-winning squad, moves across the West Country, having played T20 cricket for Somerset for the last two years.

    Taylor is the second West Indies fast bowler to play for Gloucestershire in successive seasons.

    He follows Shannon Gabriel who played in two first-class matches in 2019.

    According to BBC Sport, promoted Gloucestershire will start the County Championship Division One season against Yorkshire at Headingley on April 12th.

    His home debut should be against Lancashire at Nevil Road in Bristol a week later.
