The Pakistani cricketer has represented his country in numerous T20I and ODI matches
Pakistan leg-spinner Shadab Khan joins Surrey for next year’s T20 Vitality Blast. It will be his first appearance in county cricket. Shadab has played international matches across three formats of the sport. He represented Pakistan in 35 T20Is and 43 ODIs.
‘I've been waiting for this opportunity to play county cricket for a long time and T20 cricket at The Kia Oval is a great place to start’, Shadab said following contract signing. ‘I'm honoured to be following in the footsteps of some great Pakistan cricketers and will do my best to make both my new team and the Surrey fans proud’.
Aside from Shadab Khan, Australian cricketer D’Arcy Short joins the team and replaces Aaron Finch.
‘I enjoyed my time in the Blast in 2019. To have the opportunity to come back in 2020 and play in front of full houses at one of the best grounds in the world is brilliant’, Short said.
Shadab Khan has played for the Trinbago Knight Riders and Guyana Amazon Warriors in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL).
