Varun Aaro, India’s fast bowler is to join Leicestershire for part of the 2018 county season.
The 28-year-old will replace injured Sohail Khan.
Aaron will be available for County Championship and One-Day Cup games between 20 April and 20 June.
“Varun is a high-quality performer and his skills will be ideally suited to early season conditions in England,” said Leicestershire head coach Paul Nixon.
“We are getting a genuinely quick bowler, who has played a number of games for India and also enjoyed a fine domestic career.
“Varun is very keen to do well for us and get back in the India team again and we’re really looking forward to him linking up with us.”
