London, Jan 29 (IBNS): West Indies cricketer Shivnarine Chanderpaul and South Africa wicket-keeper batsman Dane Vilas have been signed by English county club Lancashire County Cricket Club.

The departure of two senior experienced batsmen in the form of Ashwell Prince and Alviro Petersen in recent seasons, along with the early retirement of Club legend Tom Smith has seen Head Coach Glen Chapple prioritise strengthening Lancashire’s batting unit heading into the 2017 season, read the club website.

The West Indies cricketer joined Lancashire on a one-year non-overseas contract.

Chapple, commenting on the new signings, was quoted as saying by the website, “We’re delighted to bring two experienced international batsmen into the Club ahead of the new season. Shivnarine and Dane will form an important part of our side in 2017 and we look forward to welcoming them to Emirates Old Trafford.”
