When Saif took the field for Northamptonshire in their non-first-class fixture at Durham UCCE in May 2014 he became the first 15-year-old ever to represent the County’s first-team – underlining his precocious talent and enormous potential as batsman and left-arm spinner.

Zaib performed whenever called upon by the first-team in 2019, including a crucial and potentially match winning innings at Derbyshire in the County Championship.

In September he signed a new 2-year deal that keeps him at the club until the end of 2021.

Zaib made his List A debut against Leicestershire in the Royal London One-Day Cup in 2015. Three more Championship matches fell his way in 2016 including five wickets in a marathon stint against Leicestershire.

Ahead of the 2015 season he shone for England’s Under 17s against Pakistan U17s in Dubai, scoring three successive half-centuries. He was schooled at RGS Wycombe, where his innings of 230 became a school record.

Zaib has been a constant performer in the Second XI and his performances with both bat and ball have earned him spots in the first team throughout his time at Wantage Road.
