Pakistan International player Shan Masood got a series of contract offers from Derbyshire. However, he opted to feature himself wearing the jersey of Yorkshire.
In 2023, Pakistan’s Shan Masood will represent Yorkshire as a player. He agreed a two year contract with the team at Headingley.
Shan Masood’s form has been devastating while he was playing for Derbyshire. He played for that team in 2022. However, coach Mickey Arthur tempted Masood to the Incora County Ground. Nonetheless, Masood decided to move into a different direction from next season.
Derbyshire presented a whole lot of contract offers to the Pakistan international player. However, Masood swayed his opportunity with the Yorkshire team. Moreover, he will be getting Ottis Gibson as his head coach. Masood had Gibson while he played for Multan Sultans in the Pakistan Super League. Gibson was in charge of that team too.
On Monday, The White Rose county confirmed the signing of Shan Masood.

He further added,
“His experiences from playing around the world, including international cricket with Pakistan, will be incredibly valuable to the squad we are building.”
Shan Masood said:
“I maintain a strong desire to play cricket at the highest level and I feel this project at Yorkshire provides me with the ideal opportunity to take that step.”
