Derbyshire signed former Pakistan fast bowler, Mohammad Amir, as an overseas player for the first half of the 2024 season.
Amir, 31, will be available for the first half of the LV= County Championship fixtures of the 2024 season, as well as the entire Vitality Blast group stage.
Regarded as one of the finest Pakistan quicks of his generation, Amir claimed 259 international wickets in 147 matches across all formats, including 119 Test dismissals and best figures of 6-44 against West Indies in 2017.
He was a key member of Mickey Arthur’s Pakistan side which won the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy, with Amir claiming 3-16 in the final, dismissing Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli.
Amir said: “I’ve enjoyed my experiences of county cricket in the past and joining up with Mickey, who I’ve had so much success with internationally, is something I’m looking forward to.
“The County Championship is so special and I’ve always enjoyed playing first-class cricket in England. I’ve spoken to Mickey about the quality in the squad and I want to put in the performances to help Derbyshire challenge in red and white ball cricket next summer.”
