Cape Town - Proteas leg-spinner Imran Tahir will join English county side Nottinghamshire until the end of the season. 

Tahir, 36, replaces Australian Ben Hilfenhaus as the overseas professional at the Trent Bridge-based side.

"Imran is experienced, he’s played lots of cricket in England and we know how effective international class spinners can be during the business end of a county season," Nottinghamshire Director of Cricket Mick Newell told the club's official website on Thursday. 

"We were always open to replacing Ben with a spinner, Imran was available and looks a good option for us."

Tahir, who has taken 72 wickets in 41 ODIs for the Proteas, is in line to make his debut in a One-Day Cup fixture against Essex on August 2.
