Gloucestershire sign Ahmed
Shabbir Ahmed has played six Tests
Gloucestershire have clinched the signing of Pakistan Test bowler Shabbir Ahmed as their second overseas player.
Ahmed, 27, has taken 33 wickets in six Test matches, and has played 19 one-day internationals.
"Shabbir is an exciting bowler who is well suited to English conditions and I think he'll greatly strengthen our side," said head coach Mark Alleyne.
He joins Shoaib Malik at the County Ground, who is returning after a short spell last season.
I find it a bit odd for the county to sign him at a time when he has been reported for suspect action.Also Shabbir has played just 6 test matches with little success, surely there were better bets.
I for one would have gone for I Pathan or...
