Seamer Sayfaan Sharif is to join Derbyshire

Derbyshire have signed experienced Scotland international Safyaan Sharif for the Royal London One-Day Cup and T20 Blast.

Sharif, 26, averages 27.10 in List A matches over the course of his career and has a T20 economy rate of 7.44.

He will be available for the duration of Derbyshire's white-ball summer.

"With a busy few months of white ball cricket coming up, we wanted to strengthen and provide more depth to our fast bowling department," said cricket advisor Kim Barnett.

"We’ve been monitoring Sharif for a while. He is a talented quick bowler and he showed this winter with Scotland that he has the ability to take wickets and perform to a high standard.

"Working in partnership with Cricket Scotland, Sharif will join us for our white-ball competitions providing additional strength to our attack, while also giving him exposure to county cricket."

"I’m looking forward to joining Derbyshire this summer and the opportunity to play county cricket," Sharif said.

"The club has a talented group of fast bowlers, many with international experience, and I hope I can learn from these guys but also make a difference on the field and help win games for Derbyshire."
