Ace Zimbabwean all-rounder Sikandar Raza has picked up a lucrative deal with Euro T20 Slam franchise Amsterdam Knights to participate in the inaugural edition of the tournament. The off-spinner took to Twitter to express his excitement for being part of a high-profile squad boasting quality cricketers.
Amsterdam’s lineup includes several international stars including the likes of Shane Watson, Hasan Ali, Alzarri Joseph and Ben Cutting. The glitzy league is scheduled to begin towards the end of August and will be jointly hosted in Ireland, Netherlands and Scotland as it aims to expand the popularity of the sport in this region.
With Zimbabwe Cricket (ZC) having been suspended by the International Cricket Council (ICC) recently, the question of the dates of Euro T20 Slam clashing with his national duty does not arise for Sikandar and he will be available throughout the competition.
