Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed will feature for Yorkshire county in England’s domestic cricket competition NatWest T20 Blast next month.
Champions Trophy-winning captain Sarfraz, who was also handed the Test reins a week ago, has signed up to play five matches for Yorkshire Vikings in the ongoing T20 Blast, subject to him being granted the visa.
Teammate Azhar Ali stepped up to congratulate the skipper on Twitter about his upcoming stint in the T20 Blast. “Congratulations Sarfaraz on your T20 blast signing with Yorkshire! Good Luck,” Azhar tweeted.
Earlier this week, all-rounder Imad Wasim signed up for Durham county in the same tournament. Fast bowler Mohammad Amir is already representing Essex in the T20 Blast, while former captain Shahid Afridi is playing for Hampshire. Pacer Junaid Khan left for UK earlier this week to feature for Lancashire in the T20 competition.
