Pakistan’s Faheem Ashraf makes a big achievement
ISLAMABAD - Pakistan’s Faheem Ashraf makes a big achievement in the English County Cricket.
England’s domestic side Northamptonshire County Cricket Club (NCCC) has resigned Faheem Ashraf for its 2020 campaign.
The all-rounder will be available for all formats of the county season till the conclusion of the 2020 edition of the 20-over competition.
Announcing the news, the county’s website wrote:
Pakistan international Faheem Ashraf will return to Northamptonshire for the opening half of the 2020 season. The allrounder featured for the Steelbacks in the 2019 Vitality Blast, finishing the club’s joint-leading wicket-taker with 11 scalps at an average of 19.
Northamptonshire also shared the news on its Twitter account.
Speaking about Faheem’s importance in the team, head coach of Northamptonshire said:
The fact he’s got the extra pace is key, we’ve got a very fine group of seam bowlers that got us into Division 1 and that’s not going to change.
But when it’s a bit flatter and it’s the last 2 days of the game and that little bit of nip has gone out of the wicket, someone with a bit of pace and swing and bowling yorkers then I can see him being a genuine threat when the wickets are flatter.
