Former Pakistan international cricketer Abdul Razzaq says he is settling into life in Staffordshire and enjoying playing for Hem Heath.
The North Staffordshire and South Cheshire League may be a bit of a step down for the 34-year-old, who made over 350 appearances for his country, but Razzaq insists he is just enjoying his cricket.
In an exclusive interview with StaffsLive, he said: “I am quite used to living over here, I’ve played for so many counties and I love to stay in England.”
Despite losing two out of their first three league games, Razzaq guided Hem Heath to a cup win last weekend, hitting 79* off just 71 balls.
And he expressed his desire to continue performing well for the team, helping them to bounce back from their shaky start.
He said: “I have come here to perform and to win every match, we had bad luck in the last two matches we have played but hopefully next match we can win.”
Hem Heath welcome Porthill Park this Saturday and with the buzz of their cup win still in the air coupled with Razzaq’s hunger for wickets and runs they believe they have every chance to emphatically kick start their season.
