Karachi, Apr 22 (ANI): Left-arm Pakistani pace bowler Junaid Khan is said to have recovered from his knee injury and is now all set to join Lancashire County Cricket Club as their overseas player this year, Dawn.com reported on Saturday.

Khan, who has been out of the Pakistan squad since theTwenty20 International against England in February, will join the county side in June and is expected to see out his contract until the end of the county season, unless he is called up for national duty.

Lancashire reached an agreement with the Pakistan Cricket Board on the pacer's county stint, which makes him available for the national side as and when required.

Khan has been out of the Pakistan team since February, after a knee injury in the United Arab Emirates. The injury kept him out of the Asia Cup winning squad.

The county champions recruited Khan last year in their Twenty20 squad for the Friends Life T20 tournament on the recommendation of their former left-arm pace bowler Wasim Akram (ANI).
