Yorkshire have re-signed South Africa left-arm spinner Keshav Maharaj on another short-term contract.

The 29-year-old will play in the third-placed club’s next two County Championship games as they face Nottinghamshire at Scarborough and a key trip to second-placed Somerset.

Yorkshire initially signed Maharaj on a previous short-term deal in June and he took 20 wickets in three matches.

“I would love to make this a regular feature with Yorkshire,” Maharaj said.

“Being a pro er, I’d love to ply my trade all over the world. I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Yorkshire so it will be a pleasure to come back as much as possible.”

Maharaj will also be able to play in all of Yorkshire’s limited overs matches between now and mid-September.

Yorkshire director of Martyn Moxon added: “With the injury to Adil Rashid and Dom Bess due to go back following the conclusion of the 10th T20, it was important we got Keshav back.

“He was outstanding in his first spell with us and was in a rich vein of form before he left.”
