Pakistan batter will have his work cut out as captain of a club that have just been relegated and often seem stuck in the past
Shan Masood has been keeping one eye on the county scores while in Lahore this past week. In between Pakistan’s T20 games against England, he was watching what was going on in Leeds where, on Wednesday, Yorkshire’s head coach, Ottis Gibson, announced Masood would be club captain next year after his move from Derbyshire. He is only the second overseas player to be the county’s skipper. “It is,” he says, “one of the biggest achievements of my career.”
And he was watching what was happening at Edgbaston where, a day later, his new team were relegated to the Division Two of the championship as a consequence of Warwickshire beating Hampshire.
