OVERSEAS signing Navdeep Saini will depart Worcestershire after just one game following his selection in India's test squad for the upcoming West Indies tour. 

Saini was signed on an initial four-game basis last week ahead of the County Championship clash with Derbyshire, but upon arrival at New Road, was informed of his selection by the Indian selectors.

It will mean his stint at the club will be cut short as he departs the club to join his country ahead of the test series. 

The Indian fast-bowler made an instant impact at New Road, taking a wicket with his first ball on the opening day vs Derbyshire. 

Saini becomes the second overseas signing at Worcestershire thie season to have his time cut short, following the injury to Michael Bracewell, who was due to play the season for the Rapids in the T20 Vitality Blast. 

He suffered a torn Achilles and is flying back to New Zealand to continue his recovery, which is likely to rule him out of cricket for eight to 10 months.

Worcestershire are already without quick Josh Tongue, who remains in the England squad for the Ashes Series, and bowler Adam Finch, who is currently out with an injury.

At the Members Forum on Monday morning, chairman Paul Pridgeon did say that plans were in place to bring in a new overseas player to make up for the loss of Saini and other issues with their seam attack.
