Tall, adept and a wicket-taker at international level, Derbyshire has signed Scotland fast bowler Safyaan Sharif for both white ball competitions this summer.
Sharif, who arrives hungry to take wickets after a successful ICC World Cup Qualifier campaign, will be available for the first seven Royal London One-Day Cup matches and the whole of the Vitality Blast campaign.
With 59 white ball matches for his country to his name already, Sharif brings valuable experience to The 3aaa County Ground where he will add another dimension to the bowling attack.
After making his international debut in 2011, Sharif has become a mainstay in the Scotland team and he has been recently named as the rising star in the Scottish squad by the International Cricket Council.
Sharif was the joint leading wicket-taker in Scotland’s World Cup Qualifying campaign with 17 wickets at an average of 13.94. He also recently earned the player of the match award for his impressive bowling display of 5-33 against Zimbabwe from only 8.4 overs.
