Scarborough has signed Bangladeshi legend, Junaid Siddique, for their upcoming Yorkshire Premier League North campaign.
A Bangladesh legend
Siddique, who opened the batting alongside Chris Gayle in the recent BPL, is a legend of Bangladesh cricket.
A veteran of 80 international and 350 domestic matches. Dating back to his debut 2003/04 season, Siddique has racked up over 16,000 runs, to include 2,324 at international level.
In a career spanning almost two decades, his highlight is undoubtedly his maiden Test match hundred against England in Chittagong back in March 2010.
Despite some outstanding performances, inconsistency hampered Siddique’s international career, with his final outing coming against the West Indies in November 2012. Nevertheless, Siddique has continued to pile on the runs across the three formats in domestic cricket.
Domestic run machine
He has been a consistent run-getter since his international ousting with best first-class season tallies of 1,024 runs at 60.23 and 904 runs at 56.50 during the 2016/17 and 2018/19 seasons, respectively.
Since the 2014/15 season, he has racked up 12 first-class centuries, with an average over 50.
Scarborough sign a legend
Siddique remains a high-class performer and, having never ventured to Northern shores is set to embark on his maiden stint in 2020 having recently signed with Scarborough for their Yorkshire Premier League North campaign.
