Bangladeshi legend signs for Northop Hall - 13/10/18

Enamul Haque Jnr

Northop Hall have pulled off a coup with the massive signing of Bangladeshi legend Enamul Haque Jnr

Enamul (31) is a record-breaking left-arm spinner who sits second to Abdur Razzak on Bangladeshi's first-class wicket charts (448 wickets at 30.02).

His wicket tally includes an incredible 33 five wicket bags and 6 ten wicket match hauls. The left-arm tweaker has taken the majority of his wickets for his beloved Sylhet Division (289 at 25.21), but also boasts 87 wickets at 28.28 for Bangladesh A.

It's a tad surprising Enamul hasn’t featured in more than the 15 Test matches he played between his debut against England in 2003 and final Test against Zimbabwe in 2013. Enamul took 44 test wickets with three 5-wicket bags and one 10-wicket match haul (12-200).

Speaking about the signing, David Kennedy stated the following:

"Northop Hall haven’t rested on their laurels having been promoted to Division 1 of the LDCC last year without the aid of a professional. As Director of Cricket, I was keen to bolster the young first team squad with some quality and experience".

"After working closely with CricX we are pleased to announce the signing of Enamul Haque Jnr as professional for 2019 season. A quality left arm spinner he boasts the second most first class wickets ever taken in Bangladeshi history".

"His experience of having played both one day international level and test level where he took 44 wickets is seen as a perfect fit at Northop Hall".

"We would like to express his thanks to all at CricX and particularly Steven Hirst who worked patiently and tirelessly to find the ideal candidate suited to the club. All at Northop Hall look forward to welcoming Enamul to the club and are excited at such a high profile signing".
