“Calum is a powerful striker and only yesterday showed what he can do on the big stage. He offers further depth to our squad, alongside Safyaan, for what is a busy month of cricket.
“I would like to extend my thanks to Grant and Cricket Scotland for supporting this new partnership, and we hope it can help all parties.”
Bradburn added: “It’s an exciting partnership between Cricket Scotland and Derbyshire. Calum and Safyaan are both highly-talented cricketers and will add depth and international experience to the Derbyshire squad.
