Afghanistan mystery spinner Zahir Khan has become the latest entrant in a long list of Afghan spinners making their mark on the international arena. The left-arm chinaman was pivotal in his side’s historic win against Bangladesh in the one-off Test recently and also boasts experience of playing in different leagues around the world.
The youngster has now signed with the Big Bash League (BBL) franchise Brisbane Heat and has been included in the side alongside compatriot Mujeeb Ur Rahman. His cunning skills will certainly come in handy bowling in tandem with Mujeeb.
"This is a very exciting thing for me, especially to be joining the team where my good friend Mujeeb played last year. He told me great things about Brisbane Heat, so I am looking forward to this challenge so much," he said.
