Ashburton CC are delighted to announce the signing of overseas player Akif Sohail for the remainder of the season.
The New Zealander is aged 24 and is a promising swing bowler who can bat, having completed his maiden season in the Waikato Valley competition. Courtesy of his season exploits, particularly in the senior one-day competition, he gained Waikato Valley Senior squad selection, who compete in the Fergus Hickey and national Hawke Cup competitions.
Akif, who will arrive on Wednesday, will be immediately available for the crunch match at home to Chagford.
Club captain Ashley Berry reflected on the positive news. “I am really excited about Akif meeting up the squad and letting him go with the ball. Lloyd (Club Secretary) has been working really hard since the start of the season and my many thanks go out to him for his efforts. We also thank the club members of Ashburton and the Dartmoor Lodge who have offered assistance in the process in getting Akif over.”
