Early Hants link up for Fidel

The West Indian fast bowler was due to link up with the county in late July but will now be available for their T20 friendly against Dorset next week.

Edwards, who signs up as a Kolpak player, will feature in all three formats for Hampshire this summer.

The 33-year-old, who represented West Indies in 55 Test matches and 50 ODIs, last played international cricket in November 2012.
