Saeed Ajmal signs for Hampshire for part of 2013 season
Hampshire have announced the signing of Pakistan off-spinner Saeed Ajmal for the latter part of the 2013 season.
The 35-year-old will be one of the side's overseas players during August and September when George Bailey is likely to be involved in Australia's Twenty20 squad against England.
Ajmal previously played county cricket for Worcestershire in 2011.
"He is one of the best bowlers in the world in all forms of the game," said Hampshire manager Giles White.
"He will add real quality to the squad at the business end of the season."
Beating England like winning World Cup - Ajmal
Ajmal was the scourge of England at the start of the year, taking 24 wickets to help Pakistan to a 3-0 Test whitewash against England - who at the time were ranked number one in the world - in the United Arab Emirates.
