Northamptonshire have received a No Objection Certificate for Virender Sehwag from the BCCI, but his arrival for the Twenty20 in June is still dependent on whether he is selected for India's one-day commitments in Zimbabwe.

There is a thought that India will send a second-string side to contest the triangular series at the end of May while the trip also includes two Twenty20 internationals against Zimbabwe. The English Twenty20 tournament starts on June 1.

The other issue facing Northamptonshire is the Asia Cup which has yet to be confirmed in the schedule, but will impact on Sehwag's availability should it occur in June or July. His NOC from the India board confirms that national duty must come before his county commitments.

It was a significant coup for Northamptonshire to secure Sehwag's signing as they aren't classed as one of the main forces in the domestic game. He joins a list of high-profile players who are coming to England for the Twenty20 including Shahid Afridi, Herschelle Gibbs, Adam Gilchrist and Tillakaratne Dilshan.
