Shaz boom for Lancashire

First published in Sport

England bowler Ajmal Shahzad has joined Lancashire on loan from Yorkshire for the rest of the season.

The 26-year-old has fallen out of favour at Headingley and it was announced last Tuesday he was free to leave the White Rose county on loan or on a permanent deal.

Defending county champions Lancashire have moved quickly to snap up the Huddersfield-born bowler who has played one Test and 11 one-day internationals for England.

Yorkshire chairman Colin Graves last week hinted Shahzad was disillusioned with life under new coach Jason Gillespie.

Shahzad took eight wickets in three first-class matches at an average of 26.25 for Yorkshire this season.

He was the first British-born Asian to represent Yorkshire in 2004 and he claimed match figures of four for 63 on his Test debut against Bangladesh in 2010.
