Middlesex signs Mujeeb Ur Rahman for next year’s T20 Blast
England’s Middlesex team has signed Afghanistan’s off-spinner Mujeeb Ur Rahman, the second highest ranked bowler in world T20 cricket, for the T20 Blast in 2021.
Afghan voice agency(AVA)_Mujeeb, 19, featured in nine of #Middlesex’s T20 Blast fixtures in 2019, helping the club reach the #knockout stage of the competition.
The teenager made two appearances for Kings XI Punjab in this year’s IPL.
He will be available for all of Middlesex’s games in next summer’s tournament, BBC reported.
“It’s great to have Mujeeb with us again for the Blast,” Middlesex’s head coach Stuart Law wa quoted on the club’s website as saying.
“He’s the number two ranked bowler in T20 cricket, behind his countryman #Rashid_Khan, and brings great variety to our attack.”
