Profile

Ajmal Shazad, Huddersfield-born and Bradford-raised, made cricket history on May 23, 2004 when he became the first British-born Asian to play for Yorkshire. Adil Rashid's Championship debut two years later - another landmark for Yorkshire players of Pakistani stock - attracted more attention, but between them Shahzad and Rashid changed the perceptions of a county which had finally broadened its commitment and appeal.
