NEW Zealand paceman Kurt Law is set to become Wisbech Town Cricket Club’s new overseas star... if he is granted a six-month visa.

Law, who plays for Auckland University, is waiting to hear whether he will be able to complete a move which Wisbech skipper Alan Burton says is “50-50” to go ahead.

“I played with Kurt for two years when I was in New Zealand,” said Burton. “He’s a quick, outswing bowler and he’s a wicket-taker.

“He’s a very aggressive bowler and he’s got a good yard of pace, but he can’t bat for toffee.

“At the moment he’s only got a three-month working visa, so we are waiting to hear if he can get a six-month one. It seems a bit 50-50 at the moment.”

Wisbech have signed a new wicket-keeper batsman, landing teenage talent Josh Bowers from Market Deeping.

Burton said: “Josh will fit into the side well. He’s a good player who has got a lot of promise.
