Big Bash League star Rashid Khan has joined Sussex for part of the T20 Blast, the county have announced.
Afghanistan's exciting 19-year-old leg-spinner will make his maiden appearance in English cricket by playing in the first half of this year's T20 tournament.
Khan, who has taken 45 wickets in 28 T20 internationals for his country, helped Adelaide Strikers win the BBL this year and ended the tournament as the joint-highest wicket-taker.
Sussex's new head coach Jason Gillespie led the Strikers to victory and is excited to work with Khan again.
Gillespie said: "His form for Afghanistan and the T20 teams he has played for over the last couple of years has been phenomenal.
"I have worked closely with Rash at the Adelaide Strikers in the BBL and have been incredibly impressed with his attitude, work ethic and team-first mentality."
Khan added: "It has always been an ambition of mine to play county cricket and the fact I get to link up again with Dizzy (Gillespie) is very exciting.
"I have heard a lot of good things about Sussex and am excited to join a talented squad and I hope to help the team push for T20 silverware."
