Pakistan all-rounder Shoaib Malik has inked a deal with Warwickshire that will see him represent them for six Twenty20 matches.

His first match for the county will come on June 19 against Northamptonshire and his final match is set to be against Nottinghamshire on July 8.

“I’m very excited to have signed for a huge club like the Bears,” Malik said. “I enjoyed my short stints with Gloucestershire many years ago and sadly haven’t been able to play county cricket since then because of my Pakistan commitments.”

Warwickshire director of cricket Dougie Brown was pleased to have secured the services of Malik, and said: “Shoaib has proven himself as a world-class all-rounder on the international stage and in some of the world’s biggest T20 competitions.

“Bolstering a strong squad with Shoaib’s T20 experience is an exciting proposition for the team as we look to progress in this new look tournament, hopefully to Finals Day in front of our home fans at Edgbaston.”
