Australian star Cameron White is to return to Northants next season for their Friends Life t20 campaign.
White was the stand-out performer in 2012 in what was otherwise a disappointing t20 season. In nine matches he smashed 262 runs at an average of 57.
White has also played for Somerset, Melbourne Stars, Deccan Chargers, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Victoria, and is one of the most experienced T20 players around.
Northants chief executive David Smith said: "We are delighted to welcome Cameron back to the County Ground this season, especially after his contribution with the bat last year."
