Kent County Cricket have announced the signing of Qais Ahmad for entirety of the T20 Blast and two County Championship games. Why it’s for only two County Championship games, we are not sure, perhaps he’s shopping on the the other dates.
Apparently the well known cricketer from Afghanistan is 20 years old and has played in the BBL, the CPL , the PSL, the LPL, the DHL, the VPL, the ABC, the YMCA and the PMSL.
QAIS made his T20I debut for Afghanistan, against Ireland, on 10th March 2020
He has a T20 economy rate of 7.15, and a first-class bowling average of 20.51 which we assume is quite good, otherwise KCC would not be quoting those statistics!
He is a leg-spinner but classed as a Right-arm leg break, which is ever so confusing for those not dedicated to the terms used in cricket. We look forward to seeing him spinning those legs during the season.
