Shaheen Shah Afridi: Fast Bowler will be available for Championship and Blast games through July. Shaheen Shah Afridi, the Pakistan left-arm Fast Bowler, has signed with Middlesex for the 2022 season.
Afridi, 21, will join the Middlesex pre-training team this spring. And will remain with the club until mid-July when he will make the Pakistan tour of Sri Lanka.
“I am very excited to be playing for Middlesex next season,” Afridi said. “From my time in England they are a great county and to play at the Home of Cricket really will be a dream come true. I am looking forward to being part of the team and helping create a wonderful season for the club.”
Afridi has played 19 tests for Pakistan, 76 wickets at 25.25 including three five-walk throws. And claimed a match-best performance of 10 of 93 against the West Indies at Sabina Park six weeks ago.

“Shaheen is a genuine match-winner and I’m sure all our members will be excited to welcome him to Middlesex and share in our delight that he will be wearing the three Seaxes of the Club on his chest next season.”
