Somerset's Johann Myburgh has signed a new contract to play in limited-overs matches for the county next season.

The South African batsman played three games in the 2017 One-Day Cup and nine in the T20 Blast, and will be available for both competitions in 2018.

The 36-year-old played his last County Championship matches for Somerset in 2016 and he has now formally stepped back from the four-day format.

Myburgh's new contract follows Max Waller's new deal signed last week.

"I'm very pleased and I feel blessed that I'm going to play for Somerset for another year," Myburgh told the county's website.external-link

"I've thoroughly enjoyed my time here so far and I've had great support from the fans."
