Somerset have signed Pakistan all-rounder Sohail Tanvir for this year’s Natwest T20 Blast.
Tanvir, who has played in every edition of the World Twenty20, has represented Pakistan in 42 Twenty20 Internationals and taken 36 wickets at an average of 28.52.
“Sohail is a quality top order bowler and a dangerous lower order batsman,” Somerset’s director of cricket Matt Maynard said. “There is no doubt that he will be an extremely useful addition to the squad for the NatWest T20 Blast this year.
“He is an experienced international cricketer who will provide us with something a little bit different. I worked with him at St Lucia Zouks and he was our star performer so I am looking forward to teaming up with him again.”
