The left-arm pacer will be available for the club’s division one games against Surrey, Hampshire and Somerset.

Amir has represented Pakistan in 36 Tests, 61 one-day internationals and 50 T20 internationals.

He has been signed by the club as a backup for the fellow Pakistani pacer Naseem Shah, who has been rested for one month amid a shoulder injury.

Amir, on his selection, said, “The County Championship is an amazing competition and I can’t wait to get going with Gloucestershire.

“I love playing in English conditions and I’m feeling really good, so I hope I can perform well for the team.”

Gloucestershire’s performance director Steve Snell said: “We are delighted to have signed a bowler of Amir’s calibre.

“We will sadly be without Naseem for a few weeks due to injury and while we help him get back to full fitness, Amir will provide us with quality and international experience in our seam attack for what is a strong first division competition.”
