Dale Steyn has replaced Hashim Amla as Hampshire's overseas player as his compatriot deals with a knee injury.
Amla has returned to South Africa for treatment on the problem, which flared up in May, with the aim of being fit for his country's Test series against Sri Lanka in July.
Steyn will now be available for three extra games for the Ageas Bowl club.
The seamer is set to feature in the County Championship matches against Yorkshire and Lancashire as well as Hampshire's Royal London One-Day Cup semi-final.
"I can’t say enough positive things about Hashim. He made a brilliant impression and he’s been outstanding throughout that time spent with us, both through his engagement with the club and our young players, as well as the experience and skill he offered with the bat," director of cricket Giles White said.
"It’s easy to see why he’s so well regarded around the world and one of the greats of our era. We wish him well against Sri Lanka and hopefully one day we’ll see him back in Hampshire colours."
