Hassan Azad has signed a short-term deal with Northamptonshire. 

The 29-year-old had been training with the squad following the injury to Emilio Gay and has now signed a formal contract ahead of the season. 

“Hassan is a great character who has proven success at the top of the order in red ball cricket.” Northamptonshire Head Coach John Sadler said. 

“He’s got an excellent method and a strong mind, it feels like he’s got a bit of a point to prove as well so it’s great to have him in board with us.” 

The SACA opening batsman has 52 first-class appearances under his belt with an average approaching 40. He posted an unbeaten half-century in the friendly fixture against Leicestershire earlier in the week and is set to feature against Oxford UCCE beginning tomorrow. 

Supporters are welcome to attend the three-day fixture against Oxford UCCE, entry is free. A limited live stream will also be available for all three days.

It’s not too late to order a Season Ticket and join us for every day of cricket at The County Ground this summer!
