LONDON: Pakistan’s Test fast bowler Mir Hamza will make his county debut this season after signing with Sussex for nine first-class matches in 2019. 26-year-old Hamza, who played his only Test last October against Australia, will join the county team in May this year.

“Hamza will be available for eight Specsavers County Championship matches, starting with the away fixture against Northamptonshire that begins on Monday 20th May and finishing with the match against Lancashire at Old Trafford that starts on Saturday 13th July,” said a statement by the county.

“He will also be available for the tour match against Australia A at Arundel between Sunday 7th July and Wednesday 10th July,” the statement added. Hamza expressed his excitement on signing with Sussex and said that he is looking forward to learning from the experience of playing in the county championship.

“I’m very excited to have the chance to play county cricket with a great club like Sussex, following in the footsteps of Pakistan legends like Javed Miandad and Imran Khan,” he said. “I hope I can make a good contribution towards some victories. And on a personal level, I am looking forward to working with – and learning from – Jason Gillespie.” Hamza added.
