Mohammad Nabi's summer contract with Kent has been cancelled by mutual consent.

The Afghanistan allrounder was due to turn out for the county in the T20 Blast in 2020 but, with the competition delayed due to the Covid-19 outbreak and the English domestic season still in the balance, he will no longer represent the Spitfires in the event of the competition taking place.

"There was a lot of excitement around Nabi returning as a Kent Spitfire in 2020, but unfortunately the uncertainty around the cricket schedule during this current crisis means that this isn't possible this year," director of cricket Paul Downton said.

"He was very popular amongst the squad, staff and supporters here last season and it was great to bring his experience to the club first time around.

"Hopefully there will be an opportunity for Nabi to join us again in the near future."
