Essex have released Australian leg-spinner Bryce McGain after regaining the services of overseas player Danish Kaneria.
Kaneria has returned to the county after being released from the Pakistan Test squad just one match into the ongoing four-Test series with England.
The world class leg-spinner is available for the Eagles' LV= County Championship clash with Somerset on Wednesday.
McGain, meanwhile, will head home to play for Cricket Victoria in the Champions League Twenty20 tournament next month.
The 38-year-old had been signed by Essex until the end of the season on July 23.
