Leicestershire Re-Sign Mansoor Amjad

Leicestershire have announced the re-signing of Pakistan leg-spinner Mansoor Amjad as one of their two overseas players for 2007.

Amjad, 19, played briefly for the team last season when Dinesh Mongia was unavailable but was forced to return home with a finger injury.

Leicestershire coach Tim Boon said:

"I feel we have unearthed a gem in Mansoor, who is totally committed to Leicestershire and
desperate to follow in the footsteps of Mushtaq Ahmed and Danish Kaneria.''

Mansoor Amjad has also represented Sialkot and Pakistan A in a first class career that already boasts over 1000 runs and 100 wickets.
