Pakistan skipper in all ODI formats Sarfraz Ahmed has opted to join Yorkshire county in England’s domestic cricket competition NatWest T20 Blast next month.
Champions Trophy-triumphant 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, if he is granted the visa.
Teammate Azhar Ali congratulated the skipper on Twitter about his accomplishment on making it to the T20 Blast.
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.
