Northants Cricket is delighted to announce that seam bowler Muhammad Azhar Ullah has signed a new two-year deal with the club.
The Pakistan-born bowler has enjoyed a superb season for the Steelbacks, especially in the Friends Life t20 where he took 27 wickets at 12.6 to finish as the competition’s leading wicket taker.
Azhar has also taken 15 wickets in the LV= County Championship at an average of 26.4, and 15 Yorkshire Bank 40 wickets at 17.2 to underline his all-round abilities with the ball in hand.
Azhar said after signing his new contract, “I’m really happy to sign a new contract with the club. I have really enjoyed my time here so far. I would like to thank all the fans, coaches and everyone connected with the club that have made this all possible for me.
I am excited about where the club is going and what we can achieve with the group of players we have. We have won one trophy and hopefully we can get promoted this season too. I want to repay the faith the club has shown in me and I have a desire to keep getting better, and help bring more silverware to Northants.”
