NHCC re-sign prolific leggie Babar Khan - 02/12/14

Babar Khan NEWCASTLE & HARTSHILL have re-signed prolific leg-spinner Babar Khan for their Premiership campaign in 2015.

Khan (34) was a stand-out performer for NHCC last season, helping the club to the Championship Division 1A title courtesy of 61 wickets at 10.98 including four 5-wicket hauls, economy rate of 2.16 and best bowling figures of 6-23.

The leg-spinning sensation once again lived up to his billing as "the best non County contracted spinner in the country".

The Birmingham-based English qualified tweaker has been simply outstanding for several clubs for much of the past decade.

He was the Birmingham League’s leading wicket-taker between 2008 and 2012 (289 wickets at 11.03 including twenty 5-wicket hauls).

He took 93 wickets at 7.85 (including seven 5-wicket hauls) for Bamford Fieldhouse (Saddleworth and District League) in 2013 before playing his first stint for NHCC last summer. 

NHCC will be hoping Khan replicates his success during their 2015 season in the North Staffs and South Cheshire Premier League.
