Afhghanistan left arm wristspinner Zahir Khan has signed for Lancashire for the remainder of the county season.
The 19 year old spinner will now become the fourth Afghani to join county this season after his fellow spin compatriots Rashid Khan (Sussex), Mohammad Nabi (Leicestershire) and Mujeeb Ur Rehman (Hampshire).
"I have heard a lot of good things about Lancashire and Old Trafford from Jos Buttler when I played with him at the Rajasthan Royals in the IPL and I hope to make a significant contribution during my stay here,” said a delighted Zahir.
