Lions sign Mahmood

2013-12-04 00:00

CAPE TOWN — Former Pakistan all-rounder Azhar Mahmood will represent the Highveld Lions in the upcoming domestic T20 competition, the ESPNcricinfo website reports.

Mahmood (38) represented the Cape Cobras last season but decided to join fellow Pakistani Sohail Tanvir at the Johannesburg-based franchise.

Mahmood’s availability is limited to only five matches though, but fast-bowler Tanvir will be available for the majority for the tournament.

It will be Tanvir’s third season with the Lions.

Mahmood’s addition to the Lions squad brings the tally of overseas players for the competition to seven.

The other players are Pakistan duo Shahid Afridi (Knights) and Saaed Ajmal (Titans), West Indies duo Sunil Narine (Cape Cobras) and Chris Gayle (Dolphins), and England’s Graham Onions (Dolphins).

The local T20 competition starts on January 5 and runs until February 9.
