Gloucestershire have signed Zimbabwe pace bowler Anthony Ireland on a two-year contract.
Ireland clean bowled West Indies' Chris Gayle in the World Cup
The 22-year-old played in the World Cup but has since announced his retirement from international cricket.
Gloucestershire coach Mark Alleyne said: "We are excited Anthony can now join us after featuring in the 2nd XI last year.
"He is going to add significant depth to the bowling department and we look forward to his immense contribution."
He played for Gloucestershire 2nd XI last year while spending a season with Thornbury Cricket Club.
Ireland said: "I am really glad to be playing for Gloucestershire. I firmly believe that the intensity of the first class game in England will improve my cricket quickly and I can't wait to get started."
Ireland bowled seven overs in the World Cup, taking 1-38 in the match against West Indies, and played in 26 one-day internationals in total.
