De Villiers’ initial stint finished with a victory against Surrey last week, but he will return to the club for the final two games of the group stage, and the knockouts if Middlesex qualify. Hafeez will also be available for those two games, with Mujeeb Ur Rahman, the club’s other overseas signing, set to return to Afghanistan after being recalled by his board.

He is set to make his debut against Essex at Chelmsford on Wednesday. With the pitches offering spin, Mohammad Hafeez will be a brilliant addition to the side as an all-rounder. A brilliant top-order batsman as well.

This will be Hafeez’s first stint in county cricket, though he did play club cricket in the Liverpool League in 2004 and 2005. Hafeez retired from Test cricket in December but remains available for white-ball internationals.

“We are delighted to have a player of Mohammad’s experience. And, ability joining us for the last few matches of the T20 group campaign,” said Middlesex’s director of cricket Angus Fraser. Attempting to find players to fill the holes created by Mujeeb and AB’s departures is difficult. But when contemplating such a figure, Mohammad was top of our list.”

Hafeez recently played in the Global T20 Canada. He hit 85 runs in five innings for Edmonton Royals. Meanwhile, he is expected to be available for Wednesday’s game at Essex. He was part of Pakistan’s World Cup squad, making 253 runs including a vital 84 against England at Trent Bridge, but was left off their central contracts list last week.
