Profile

Ashar Zaidi, a Karachi-born allrounder, signed a two-year contract with Sussex ahead of the 2014 season. Zaidi appeared in two Championship matches for the county in 2013, having played in the Lancashire League since leaving Pakistan. He has a British passport and provided Sussex with a badly-needed spin option after the release of Monty Panesar.
