Profile

Mohammad Azharullah was extolled as one of the surprise stars of 2013 on England's professional circuit. A fast-medium bowler, hailing from Peshawar, he emerged from a lengthy grounding in league cricket to set the county scene alight. Azhar's wicket-taking knack was particularly notable in the Friends Life t20, where he finished as the competition's top wicket-taker by a distance, with 27 victims at an average of 12.6. A player few had heard of was voted at the end of the season as Northants' T20 Players' Player of the Year and he was also PCA national award.
