Nottinghamshire have lined-up VVS Laxman to replace Adam Voges as their overseas player in August.
Australian batsman Voges will make his final appearance for the county on August 12.
It had originally been hoped that his compatriot David Hussey would return after Australia's tour of the Caribbean, but that plan was scuppered when he was ordered to rest by Cricket Australia.
They have instead turned to experienced Indian batsman Laxman, who will make his Nottinghamshire debut against Sussex at Hove on August 27.
"I've heard lots of great things about Nottinghamshire and I'm really looking forward to playing there at the end of the season," said Laxman, who scored 54 against England in India's seven-wicket victory at Trent Bridge last July.
"Hopefully it will be a successful time for the club and I can make a positive impact.
"I've played at Trent Bridge a few times and want to score a lot of runs for the team."
Laxman scored two centuries and two half-centuries in his five LV County Championship games for Lancashire last season and averages 43.82 in 93 Tests for India.
