Mohammad Ali, a left-arm fast-medium bowler from Pakistan, has signed for Middlesex. Ali, 31, formerly of Derbyshire, has taken 264 first-class wickets at an average of 32.60.

Middlesex's coach John Emburey told the BBC: "We have to strengthen up in the seam bowling area and hopefully there will be a couple more signings this winter."

Ali recently qualified for England, and played for Herefordshire in 2005.
