The left-armer will also be available for Championship cricket, if required.
“We are delighted to have got a bowler of Junaid’s quality at such short notice,” Middlesex’s managing director of cricket Angus Fraser said. “I would like to thank the Pakistan Cricket Board for their help in getting this deal through.”
Junaid has previously played for Lancashire, for whom he took 31 Twenty20 wickets at 14.58.
Playing my first match tomorrow for Middlesex against my former county Lancashire… keep me in your prayers…
