CUCC offer their congratulations to Zafar Ansari on his call up to the England ODI squad for the match against Ireland. The fixture will take place at Malahide Cricket Club on Friday May 8th.
Having graduated in 2013 with a first class degree, Zafar has gone on to make quite an impression on the professional game. His credentials as a limited overs all-rounder are evidenced by impressive averages of 31.60 with the bat and 30.68 with the ball for Surrey. Indeed, this merely represents the latest feather in his cap after his selection for last winter’s England Performance Programme.
CUCC would like to wish Zafar the best of luck for this fixture, and hope to see him become an England regular in the coming years.
