Chennai Superkings have snapped up New Zealand pace bowler Tim Southee for the fourth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL).

The Superkings bowling attack was weakened considerably after the likes of Dwayne Bravo and Doug Bollinger sustained injuries during the World Cup.

Southee s inclusion would add more teeth to the Superkings bowling department. The fast bowler enjoyed a fruitful World Cup, snaffling 18 wickets and helped his side reach the semifinals where they went down to Sri Lanka.

Chennai Superkings are coached by former New Zealand captain Stephen Fleming, while former New Zealand coach Steve Rixon is the fielding coach.
