Lancashire have suffered a blow ahead of their Friends Life t20 campaign after they confirmed Junaid Khan, the Pakistan left-arm quick bowler, would not take up his deal with the club due to international commitments.
Junaid has been named in Pakistan's Test squad for their series against Sri Lanka which coincides with the FLt20 and will now not link up with countryman Yasir Arafat who is Lancashire's other overseas player for the tournament.
Junaid made a positive impression with Lancashire last season where he took 12 wickets in eight t20 matches with an economy rate of six per over, although was not available for Finals Day when Lancashire went out in a semi-final super over against Leicestershire.
He is one of a number of international players who have had to withdraw from county contracts in recent weeks including Peter Siddle, Faf du Plessis and Mitchell Johnson.
