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.

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