ISLAMABAD: Worcester’s Old Elizabethans (OEs) got left-handed opening batsman Nasir Jamshed on Thursday 12 April 2016 in their bid for promotion from Birmingham and District Premier Cricket League Division Two. This is the first time he will play county cricket.
According to Worcester News, OEs’ cricket committee chairman Steve Walsh said Jamshed will join after participating in upcoming Pakistan Cup.

The 26-year-old is a good choice for the English club with a one-day international batting average of 31.51 alongside three centuries against India in a row.
He last played for Pakistan at the ICC World Cup in Australia in March 2015 but has also played in two Tests and a string of T20 internationals.Last year he failed to impress selectors because of his bad form.
The Worcester club begins their promotion push at home to Stratford on April 30, at the Memorial Ground in Perdiswell.
Chairman Walsh said it was still doubtful whether Jamshed would participate in the first match because of his previous commitments in Pakistan Cup.
There is a chance Nasir will be here for the first league game, but he might miss that one, he said.
Walsh also added:
“He’s a fantastic signing. We expect him to score a stack of runs and add experience to quite a young side. I believe he’s quite an explosive opening batsman,”
