Leeds, June 26 (IANS) South Africa left-arm spinner Keshav Maharaj was on Wednesday roped in by Yorkshire for a brief red-ball deal for the next three County Championship games. He will begin his stint with the game against Surrey on Sunday.

“When you start playing club cricket in the UK, you keep an eye on the circuit and always wonder what it would be like to play it,” he told yorkshireccc.com as quoted by Cricbuzz.

“I got the opportunity to play for Lancashire, and against Yorkshire, and developed a bit of a relationship with a few of the guys. I’m very, very happy and privileged to be coming back. As a cricketer the more you play the better you get. Coming out of a pre-season, it’s a bit of a stepping stone to my domestic season and it will be nice to get a few overs under my belt,” he added.

“Aside from the cricket you learn a lot about yourself. You’re sort of a stranger in a different place. You have to learn to take more responsibility and find a way to get through things. It adds to your character,” Maharaj further pointed out.

Maharaj had a brief stint with Lancashire last season and scalped 11 wickets in a tie against Somerset last year, including figures of 7/37 in the second innings.

Maharaj made his Test debut in 2016 against Australia in Perth and since then has been more or less a regular for the Proteas in the longest format of the game.

He has played 25 Tests so far, picking up 94 wickets.
