Middlesex have signed Pakistan fast bowler Junaid Khan as a replacement overseas player for Joe Burns.

Left-armer Junaid, 25, is available to play in the One-Day Cup and also in the Championship if required.

He has played 22 Tests, 52 one-day internationals and nine Twenty20 games for his country.

Junaid could make his debut against Lancashire, the side he represented in the T20 Blast in 2014, in their One-Day Cup tie at Blackpool on Wednesday.

"We are delighted to have got a bowler of Junaid's quality at such short notice," said Middlesex managing director of cricket Angus Fraser.

"With over 80 international appearances and over 150 international wickets, he will bring variety, experience and further quality to our bowling attack."
