Left-handed opener Shan Masood has signed a two-year deal with Yorkshire after dominating for Derbyshire this year. Shan, who scored 1779 runs for Derbyshire this year so far, will be representing Yorkshire for the next two years.
“I’m delighted to have signed for Yorkshire,” said the 32-years-old cricketer. “The pedigree and the history of Yorkshire CCC is massive and to play at Headingley week in week out is a dream. To follow in the footsteps of the three Pakistan captains (Inzamam ul Haq, Younis Khan and Sarfaraz Ahmed) that have represented Yorkshire is really exciting,
“I’m looking forward to sharing a dressing room with some really talented players, including the current England players like Joe Root, Jonny Bairstow, Adil Rashid, Dawid Malan and Harry Brook,
“I’m also looking forward to working with Ottis Gibson again, having worked closely with him in the PSL (Pakistan Super League) this year,” the cricketer praised.
Shan returned to the national squad for Sri Lanka Test series but remained on the bench for both Tests. He then rejoined Derbyshire’s squad for the ongoing season.
