New Yorkshire signing Sarfaraz Ahmed checked into Bradford yesteday and immediately set his sights on continuing his proud record in England.
The Pakistan captain has joined the White Rose for the remainder of the NatWest T20 Blast, a replacement for Australia's Peter Handscomb, and was welcomed by over a hundred eager fans at a public appearance at Bradford Park Avenue Cricket Club.
It is only six weeks since Sarfaraz led his unfancied side to a memorable Champions Trophy victory at the Kia Oval, while two years ago he registered his highest ODI score against England at Lord's.
Now, with Yorkshire top of the Blast's North Group and gunning for an elusive first T20 title, the 30-year-old has the very real prospect of making some more fond memories on these shores.
Sarfaraz follows in the footsteps of two of his country's most celebrated players in wearing Yorkshire colours, with Younis Khan and Inzamam-ul-Haq having done so a decade ago.
