Somerset have been boosted by the news that Corey Anderson will return to the club for this year's T20 Blast.

New Zealand allrounder Anderson will be available for the entire tournament, which gets under way for Somerset on July 6.

The 27-year-old made an instant impression at the County Ground last season, hitting 142 runs in four innings in the competition at a strike rate of 184.41 before injury hit.

He said: "I’m really excited to be returning to Somerset for this year’s Vitality Blast. Having had my time at Taunton cut short with injury last season, I feel I have unfinished business and I hope I can help Somerset go all the way in 2018."

Somerset director of cricket, Andy Hurry said: "We are delighted to have secured Corey for the entire Vitality Blast campaign.

"I believe that continuity throughout this competition is going to be key in achieving success and therefore it was crucial for us to be able to bring in a high-quality player who would be available for the duration of the tournament.

"Corey has a vast amount of experience and is very well known here at Somerset. His all-round ability will have a huge impact on our performances."
