The Aussie batsman had already signed on for the Vitality Blast campaign but will now arrive this week.

“We have been in negotiation with Cricket Australia and Usman ever since Shaun was called up to the Australian one-day team and we are delighted he will be joining us early as cover," director of cricket Hugh Morris said.

“Usman is a very talented cricketer, who has a fantastic Test record and I’m sure he will do a great job coming in for Shaun and be a positive influence on our young squad.”
