Norden are delighted to announce that professional Ashar Zaidi has re-signed with the club for the 2022 season. The former Pakistan A all-rounder has had a superb season with both bat and ball and at time of writing has scored 1591 runs and taken 68 wickets in all competitions. In the league, Ashar’s batting record this season has been remarkable; he has been dismissed only 9 times in 19 innings and averages 112 whilst being the only player in the top division to have passed the 1000 run mark.
His 51 league wickets have come at 13 runs apiece and his economy rate of less than 3 runs per over with a home ground as small as Stag Park is outstanding. Ashar will continue his coaching role with the senior squad over the winter and the cricket committee have no doubts that his re-signing will help the club continue to compete for silverware again in the 2022 season.
