Durham have signed India spin bowler Axar Patel for the last six matches of this summer's County Championship.

The 24-year-old, who also has a first-class century to his credit, will be available to make his debut in the away game against Glamorgan on 19 August.

Slow left-armer Patel's first appearance at the Riverside will come against Northamptonshire 10 days later.

He has played 38 one-day internationals and 11 T20 matches for India, but is yet to win a Test cap.

Patel is currently playing for Kings XI Punjab in the Indian Premier League.
