There has been a shock call-up for Shane Williams to the British and Irish Lions squad.
Wales' record try-scorer retired from international rugby in 2011 and is currently playing in Japan.
He has been drafted in as temporary cover after a series of injuries for the Lions in Australia.
Glamorgan have announced that New Zealand all-rounder Nathan McCullum will play for them in the county Twenty20 competition this summer.
The 32-year-old is an experienced international, and is playing at the Swalec Stadium today against England in the ICC Champions Trophy.
His younger brother Brendon had a spell with Glamorgan in 2006, scoring the club's fastest-ever 50 in T20 cricket from just 18 balls.
"I'm looking forward to joining up with the Glamorgan squad", Nathan said. "I've spent a bit of time in Cardiff over the past few weeks and have enjoyed playing at the SWALEC Stadium."
Matthew Mott, Glamorgan's Head of Elite Performance, said: "We are delighted to have secured Nathan's services. He is an experienced T20 cricketer and we believe he will be a valuable addition to our squad."
Glamorgan begin the Friends Life t20 away against Worcestershire on 28 June.

Former Wales winger Shane Williams has been called up by the British and Irish Lions, for their final warm-up game in Australia on Tuesday.
The 36-year-old is Wales' all-time record try scorer, but retired from Test rugby 18 months ago, and has been playing at semi-professional level in Japan.
Williams will line up on the wing against the ACT Brumbies on Canberra in Tuesday, as one of six players who were not in the original tour squad.
The call-ups have come due to injury concerns over players like Jamie Roberts and George North, with the Lions' first Test against Australia on Saturday.
Lions head coach Warren Gatland said "We just said we needed Shane for one game. He comes in Monday, trains, plays on Tuesday and he leaves the squad on Wednesday. He was perfectly happy with that."
"He's in pretty good nick. We know that he is fit and training, and I am sure he will come and do the jersey proud and do himself proud."
Williams told talkSPORT "It was completely out of the blue. I am more shocked than you are. It is still sinking in, and what I will do on the field is give my 100 percent effort and commitment and do whatever it takes to help the team out."
"I have been playing in Japan over the last 12 months. Fitness is not going to be an issue."
The Lions have called up England centre Brad Barritt, after Jamie Roberts limped off against the Waratahs.

England winger Christian Wade has also been summoned, with George North thought to be fighting for fitness.
Wales centre Jamie Roberts is a major doubt for the Lions' Test matches against Australia this summer, after limping off injured in a warm-up victory over the Waratahs.
Roberts had looked set to start at inside centre in the first Test against the Wallabies next Saturday.
After the game, Lions head coach Warren Gatland said: "I think he's torn a bit of a hamstring but I'm not 100 per cent sure, I haven't spoken to the medics."
The Lions' general prospects are brighter, after a commanding performance and 47-17 victory.
Cardiff Blues full-back Leigh Halfpenny scored two tries, four conversions and four penalties to amass 30 points himself.
Scarlets centre Jonathan Davies also touched down, as did Jonathan Sexton, and Tom Croft.
Gatland said "I thought the performance was out of the top drawer. It's a really happy squad out there at the moment and the boys are all egging each other on and it's nice to be part of it."

"The Vale of Glamorgan Council is extremely disappointed to hear of the Football Association of Wales’ decision not to permit the newly named Barry Town United AFC to remain within the Welsh Football League.
The Barry Town Supporters’ Committee have funded the playing of football by Barry Town at Jenner Park for the last two seasons. This committee, club manager Gavin Chesterfield, his management team and the players are a credit to Barry and the Vale of Glamorgan and have all worked tirelessly to retain a Barry Town football team at the highest levels of Welsh football.
– Cllr Neil Moore, Leader of Vale of Glamorgan Council
The council is considering its position in this case matter as we very much recognise the importance of a high standard of football to Barry and the Vale of Glamorgan as a whole.
The ramifications of the decision are considerable as the council planned to work with Barry Town United AFC to improve youth football for both boys and girls and to develop improved coaching skills across the various Leagues, who use the Vale’s pitches, to improve the standard of amateur football.
