Sussex Release Saqlain Mushtaq

Sussex County Cricket Club regrets that, owing to personal reasons, Saqlain Mushtaq will be unable to fulfil his contract next season and has, therefore, been released from the Club.

Saqlain Mushtaq said: " I would like to thank the whole team at Sussex for all the opportunities they have given me this season. The Club has been wonderful and it is with a heavy heart that I am having to say goodbye for my own personal reasons."

Mark Robinson, Pro Cricket Manager said: "It is with regret that we say goodbye to Saqlain as in his short stay with us he has become part of the family. Myself as a coach, the players and all the supporters have been privileged to be able to witness two of the best spin bowlers there have ever been bowling in tandem at Hove. We would like to thank Saqlain for all he has given the club and wish him well if he decides to stay in the game, or indeed what ever the future holds for him."
