Three Pakistani players sign for the T20 blast deals in UK
ISLAMABAD - After Babar Azam, two Pakistani cricketers, Shaheen Afridi and Imad Wasim have also signed T20 Blast deals with Hampshire and Nottinghamshire respectively.
After the conclusion of Pakistan’s tour of England, a total of three players have confirmed their availability for the remaining fixtures of the domestic T20 event. Babar has already represented Somerset while Shaheen made his debut for Hampshire in a losing cause on Thursday night.
The 20-year-old gave away 30 runs in his 3 overs against Surrey in a rain-curtailed clash. Having made only 77/5 in their 11 overs, Hampshire bowlers failed to defend the score as Hashim Amla and Will Jacks guided their team to victory with ease. ------------------------------
Imad Wasim is likely to feature for Nottinghamshire tonight against Leicestershire at Trent Bridge. The all-rounder represented Nottinghamshire in last year’s T20 Blast campaign as well.
Babar’s next match is against Birmingham Bears tonight at 10:30 pm PST while Hampshire will face Sussex on 10th September at Southampton.
