The best in Associate cricket is headed towards Nepal in Nov 2018 with the latest overseas professional for Everest Premier League being UAE’s Mohammad Naveed, who is set to sign the contract with Bhairahawa Gladiators franchise, as reported by Sport 360.
Naveed follows his UAE teammate and captain Rohan Mustafa, who earlier signed up for Kathmandu Kings XI for the 2018 edition of the T20 league. However, with the T10 league also set to clash with EPL, Naveed could miss out on few matches towards the end if he is selected again to play in the T10 league (in all likelihood, yes).
Mohammad Naveed has had a career best ranking of #10 in the MRF ICC T20I player rankings and has played in the 2017 edition of Hong Kong T20 Blitz and the 2018 Global T20 Canada few weeks earlier.
Mohammad Naveed has represented UAE in 31 ODI’s, 22 T20I’s and 7 First-Class matches so far in his International career.
Another high profile signing for the league after Kathmandu King’s signed up Ireland’s Kevin O’Brien and Rohan Mustafa with Biratnagar Warriors likely to have the services of Hong Kong pair from last season, Babar Hayat and Anshuman Rath.
