Yorkshire County Cricket Club have signed Sarfraz Ahmed on a short-term deal as a replacement overseas player for the outgoing Peter Handscomb.
Handscomb is due to depart the UK after the Vikings’ trip to Trent Bridge on Sunday and will head home for a scheduled week-long training camp in Darwin ahead of Australia’s tour of Bangladesh.
Ahmed is due to arrive in the UK before the end of the month, subject to obtaining a visa. Yorkshire say the Pakistan captain will play the final five qualifying NatWest T20 Blast fixtures, as well as any knockout games.
He said: "I've always wanted to play county cricket so this is an exciting opportunity for me. Yorkshire are a big club with a rich history and huge reputation and I'm proud to be following in the footsteps of other Pakistanis who have played at Headingley like Younus Khan and Inzamam-ul Haq. It’s a dream come true for me and hopefully it can help me become an even better professional."
