The Durban’s Super Giants are excited to announce the signing of exciting Afghan spinner, Noor Ahmad for the 2024 season of the SA20 League. One of the only chinaman bowlers in world cricket, he replaces Sri Lankan speedster Dilshan Madhushanka in the DSG setup. Noor took the world by storm after an incredible debut season at the IPL 2023 where he lapped up 16 wickets in 13 matches at a miserly economy of 7.82 for the eventual runners-up, Gujarat Titans. Despite being only 18 years old, Noor showed talent and maturity beyond his age when he represented Afghanistan in the recently concluded World Cup where he took 5 wickets in 2 games in what proved to be the nation’s best-ever campaign, by a margin.
Noor will look to capitalize on the spin-friendly tracks of Kingsmead under the mentorship of veteran spinner and DSG captain, Keshav Maharaj. He will also join fellow Afghan compatriot, Naveen ul Haq, who was recently announced as a key signing by the Super Giants. DSG will kickstart their campaign on 11th January 2024 in a headline clash against MI Cape Town.
