Blythe bag spin king Babar Khan - 02/01/19

Babar Khan UK

Blythe have signed spin sensation Babar Khan for their 2019 North Staffs and South Cheshire League campaign.

Babar Khan (39) is one of, if not the best non-County contracted spinner in the country who has dominated UK league cricket over the past decade.

The Birmingham-based English qualified leg-spinner was the Birmingham League’s leading wicket-taker between 2008 and 2012 (289 wickets at 11.03 including twenty 5-wicket hauls), captured an incredible 93 wickets at 7.85 (including seven 5-wicket hauls) for Bamford Fieldhouse (Saddleworth and District League) in 2013 before a further 115 wickets at 15.07 for Newcastle and Hartshill in the North Staffs and South Cheshire League (Division 1 A, then Premier) in 2014-15.

The tweaker then returned to Bamford, for their inaugural Greater Manchester Cricket League campaign in 2016 to take another 44 wickets at 10.73 before a prolific summer in 2017 for Bamford once again (50 wickets at 14.58).

Seeking a club closer to home, the leggie returned to the Birmingham last summer to play for Wolverhampton. In a struggling side, Khan was the shining light taking 37 wickets at 20.78 in the top tier of the Birmingham and District Premier Cricket League.

Khan has decided to return to the North Staffs League in 2019 where he hopes to continue his domination, this time for Blythe.
