For summer’s T20 Blast competition, Leicestershire have signed Afghanistan all-rounder Mohammad Nabi.
Earlier, Rashid Khan signed for Sussex and Nabi is the second Afghan player to agree a county deal. The 33-year-old has played 93 one-day internationals and 60 T20 matches for his national team.
Paul Nixon: “He can make a huge impact in our middle order and is an off-break bowler with great control and skill.”
On 4th July, Leicestershire will begin with an away game against Northants Steelbacks. At an average of 24.80, Nabi has scored 961 T20 runs for Afghanistan with a strike rate of over 139 and taken 61 wickets.
Nabi said: “I have heard a lot of good things about the Foxes. I am looking forward to working with Paul Nixon and joining a professional and ambitious county with a good track record in T20.”
