Lancashire Lightning have boosted their squad with the overseas signing of Pakistan international Junaid Khan.
Subject to registration, the 21 year-old left-arm seamer will join up with his new team-mates for their Friends Life t20 campaign.
He has represented his country in seven One Day Internationals and was in the recent Test squad for the series against the West Indies.
Cricket Director Mike Watkinson said: “Junaid is a hot prospect who was recommended to us by Wasim Akram. He is initially with us for our Friends Life t20 campaign but there may be some scope for him to feature in our LV= County Championship squad later in the summer.
“Like Farveez Maharoof, Junaid joins us on modest terms with an incentive to play county cricket in the hope of furthering his international ambitions.”
Head Coach Peter Moores added: “Junaid is an extremely talented cricketer who will supplement our seam attack. He bowls with good pace and variation and we look forward to working with him.”
