Afridi, who featured in Pakistan’s 5-run win over England in the third and final T20I, bowled a peach of a ball to dismiss England opener Jonny Bairstow.

Now with international duty over, the left-arm seamer can gain some valuable experience playing in the English conditions.

“We’re delighted that Shaheen can join us for the remainder of the Vitality Blast, the skill he possesses with the white ball in hand will add depth and an extra dimension to our side,” Director of Hampshire Cricket Giles White told ‘The Cricketer’.

In 45 domestic T20s, Afridi has accounted for 57 wickets at an average of 21.84.

He becomes the second Pakistan international to take their place in the competition, with T20 skipper Babar Azam joining Somerset.

Meanwhile spin all-rounder Imad Wasim has been roped in by Nottinghamshire.
