Afghanistan’s leg-spin sensation Qais Ahmad has inked a deal with English county Gloucestershire for the next summer of cricketing action. The 19-year-old is expected to feature in Gloucestershire’s T20 Blast campaign in 2020 along with several of their County Championship games.
"I am extremely happy to have signed for Gloucestershire for the T20 Blast and then the County Championship. It is a great honour for me to join Gloucestershire after they had such a successful 2019 season,” the young leggie told the club’s website.
Despite having only recently made his international debut for Afghanistan, Qais has acquired the reputation of being a globetrotter. He already has the experience of playing in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL), Big Bash League (BBL) and Afghanistan Premier League (APL).
