Imran Tahir will equal Marcus Norths record of playing for six different counties after signing for Derbyshire. Air Jordan 11 NZ . Tahir, the South Africa legspinner, is expected to be available from June onwards, depending on his international commitments.Derbyshire have begun overhauling their squad after a disappointing season, with chairman Chris Grant signalling a move to making more experienced signings. Ireland wicketkeeper-batsman Gary Wilson has joined from Surrey and Luis Reece accepted a contract after being released by Lancashire but the arrival of Tahir will add extra quality.Tahir, 37, is ranked the No. 1 T20 bowler and No. 3 in ODIs, according to the ICC player ratings. Last season, he played seven Championship matches for Nottinghamshire, taking 25 wickets at 37.20, although he could not prevent their relegation to Division Two.I love playing cricket in England and Im looking forward to playing a senior role at Derbyshire, Tahir said. Ive learned a lot over the years and if I can pass my knowledge on to youngsters and help win matches, then its a great option for me.Tahir will be in England from May, with South Africa playing a bilateral ODI series ahead of the Champions Trophy, but will then link up with Derbyshire. South Africa are scheduled to play a four-Test series afterwards but Tahir is unlikely to be involved.Derbyshire recently appointed a new director of cricket, Kim Barnett, after finishing bottom of Division Two and failing to progress in the two limited-overs competitions. They have also taken the rare step of bringing in a specialist T20 coach, another former player, New Zealands John Wright.Barnett said that alongside his proven ability, Tahir would help the development of Derbyshires young legspinner Matt Critchley.We are keen to strengthen our squad with experienced match winners who will also help our talented youngsters, Barnett said. With his vast international and domestic experience here in England, Imran fits the bill perfectly.He is one of the best legspinners in the world and were very excited to have him on board. Not only will Imran bring an added dimension to our bowling line up, his influence on the team and players, such as Matt Critchley, will be immense.Former Australia batsman North became the first overseas player to represent six different counties when he joined Glamorgan in 2012.

VIENNA -- A city in Siberia will be stripped of hosting the 2021 world biathlon championships if Russians in the sport fail doping retests of samples taken at the 2014 Sochi Olympics.International Biathlon Union President Anders Besseberg told The Associated Press on Wednesday its possible without problem to reallocate the hosting rights from the city of Tyumen if more Russian doping infringements surface following the revelation of an alleged state-backed doping plot at the Sochi Games.WADA and IOC have commissions working on this, Besseberg said. If they should come up with things that it will be wrong, or as a kind of punishment, that you cannot organize big events in Russia, then there is absolutely no problem for us. We will have a new congress in 2018.The IBU Congress in Chisinau, Moldova, last weekend elected Tyumen to host the competition despite a recent IOC recommendation to all winter sports federations to freeze their preparations for major events in Russia and find host cities in other countries.According to Besseberg, the IOC request from July didnt apply to the 2021 biathlon worlds because its host bidding process had already started.Besseberg said the IBU and other winter sports federations received a very clear statement by the International Olympic Committee at a meeting during the Rio de Janeiro Games last month that all competitions already granted to Russia should run normally, and applications (to host an event) that were in process shall also run the normal way. This was the case for us.Therefore, two IBU events in Russia in the 2016-17 season -- the junior world championships in Ostrov in Februuary and a World Cup event in Tyumen the following month -- will go ahead as planned.

Also in other winter sports, no major events have been moved from Russia so far.In a statement to the AP, the IOC said it is aware of the decision of the IBU Congress and will continue its discussions with the International Olympic Winter Sports Federations about the practical implementation of the recommendation of the IOC EB.The IOC announced earlier its recommendation was an interim order through 2016 which its board will review in December.Situated 2,500 kilometers east of Moscow, Tyumen won Sundays election by getting an absolute majority in the first round of voting, beating rival bids from Pokljuka in Slovenia and Nove Mesto in the Czech Republic.Officials from several national biathlon federations, including those of the United States, Canada and Norway, publicly criticized the choice for a Russian venue as it would send a wrong signal in the awake of the World Anti-Doping Agency inquiry report on the state-backed doping plot.When its about granting the rights for the world championships, its the sole responsibility of the delegates from the different national federations, Besseberg said, adding that none of the delegates asked questions or had any remarks during the congress when they were informed by him on the updated IOC recommendation.The voting on the candidates run in the absolutely normal way, Besseberg said.---AP Sports Writer Stephen Wilson in London contributed to this report.
