“I am looking forward to playing with Imam-ul-Haq [Pakistani batsman] again.

“I hope I can contribute to Somerset winning the last four County Championship games of the season.”

Somerset next faces West Country rivals Gloucestershire at home, starting on September 5, with the Taunton-based county second bottom of Division One and five points from safety.

Andy Harry, Somerset’s director of cricket, said: “With Jack Leach unavailable due to his England commitments for at least two rounds of Championship cricket, we felt that the run-in international Recruiting quality spinners is important.”
