Mohammad Sami Signs For Sussex

Sussex have announced the signing of Pakistani fast bowler Mohammad Sami until the end of the season.

Sami has played 33 Test matches for Pakistan and 83 ODIs. His arrival is in time for Sussex's important LV County Championship clash with Yorkshire at Scarborough on Wednesday.

Mark Robinson, Professional Cricket Manager, said: "Mushtaq (Ahmed) helped massively with the signing of Mohammad - spending ten days, almost non-stop, on the phone making sure that everything went smoothly.

We had originally hoped that Mohammad would be here in time for last week's match with Nottinghamshire. However, his arrival late last night will give everybody a boost for what is increasingly looking like an extremely important game at Scarborough on Wednesday."

Gus Mackay, SCCC Chief Executive, commented: "Mohammad's arrival comes just in time for an intense finish to the domestic season. It will be an exciting month and his experience and ability should prove vital in our search for more silverware."
