London:

Australia seamer Stuart Clark will play for Kent for the first half of the 2010 English season, the county announced on Wednesday.

Clark had been poised to be Kent's overseas player for 2009 but that was blocked after he won a recall to the Australia side and Kent's chairman of cricket, Graham Johnson, was delighted to see the move resurrected.

"Stuart is a tremendous character and has the ability and experience that we are looking for," Johnson said.

"He is a genuine wicket-taker and will bring a great amount to the side. He has a positive outlook and will prove a great addition."

Clark played in the final two Tests of the 2009 Ashes series and was a key figure in the Australia side that secured an Ashes whitewash in the 2006-07 series, taking 26 wickets at an average of 17.

He also has previous experience of county cricket having played for Middlesex in 2005 and Hampshire in 2007.
