Chipstead is excited to announce the signing of Afghan quick, Mohammad Ibrahim, for their 2024 Surrey Championship campaign.

Ibrahim is a genuine quick whose domestic exploits have drawn national interest.

The speedster has been one of the stars of Afghanistan’s Ahmad Shah Abdali 4-Day Tournament in recent years, finishing as the 5th (15 wickets at 23.33), and 2nd (20 wickets at 17.75) leading wicket-taker during the past two editions (2021/22, 2022/23).

Playing for the star-studded Speen Ghar Region, Ibrahim has been an absolute stand-out in domestic cricket and has been rewarded with Afghanistan A selection over the years, playing against the likes of Zimbabwe, India, South Africa, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, and Oman (as recently as July 2023).

The in-form Speen Ghar star, who recently bagged best figures of 7-22 (10) against Band-E-Amir Region in the Ghazi Amanullah Khan Regional One Day Tournament is such an exciting prospect.

Whilst Ibrahim is eager to break into the full national side, for now he is keen to continue developing his game abroad, and is set to play in Surrey for Chipstead Coulsdon and Walcountians for their division two campaign.
