Sussex have recruited Yasir Arafat as their overseas player for 2009.
The Pakistan all-rounder is returning for a second spell at Hove having enjoyed a successful eight-game stint during the double-winning season of 2006.
The 26-year-old, who has played one Test and eight one-day internationals, spent last season at Kent where he was their leading wicket-taker in limited-overs cricket.
"Yasir's signing is fantastic news and we are flattered that he is keen to return to Hove," Sussex's professional cricket manager Mark Robinson told the county's official website.
"It's further evidence that people who play for the club fall in love with it.
"He's not only an outstanding new and old ball bowler, but a fantastic lower-middle order batsman, who should stand out in both our four and one day cricket."
