Essex have signed South Africa-born batsman Cameron Delport for the 2019 and 2020 T20 Blast competitions.

The 29-year-old left Leicestershire last month, midway through a two-year contract - having played for them as a non-overseas player on a UK passport.

He has scored almost 4,000 runs in 171 T20 matches at a strike rate of 138.29, and is a useful medium-pace bowler.

"The club has an amazing history and tradition so I'm proud to be given the opportunity to get involved," he said.

"There's a strong squad and I hope to play my part in getting the Eagles to Finals Day come September."

Delport has also played in the Big Bash League and Indian Premier League.
