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. County professionals soon came to respect him as a tough competitor, especially bowling at the death.
