For­mer Eng­land bowler Aj­mal set for Sussex exit

Kuwait Times - - SPORTS -

LON­DON: For­mer Eng­land bowler Aj­mal Shahzad is set to leave Sussex af­ter two years with the county side. The 31-year-old, who played for Eng­land 15 times across all for­mats in­clud­ing one Test match, joined Sussex two years ago, but has not played any first-team matches since mid-May against South Africa. The seamer, who’s also played for Lan­cashire, Not­ting­hamshire and his na­tive York­shire, with whom he started his ca­reer, will now be seek­ing a new chal­lenge as he pre­pares to de­part his fourth county team. “I have loved my time at Sussex and I’m very grate­ful to ev­ery­one at the club for their sup­port over the last few years, but I think it is clear that I and the club are go­ing in dif­fer­ent di­rec­tions, and it suits both par­ties to part ways,” he said. “I’m re­ally ex­cited about the next stage of my ca­reer, and it is my in­ten­tion to be back play­ing cricket as soon as pos­si­ble. I have a huge amount to of­fer a county and I know I will be a valu­able as­set to some­one.” —AFP
