Farhan Adil

2001 - 2002

Farhan Adil came to Great Harwood in 2001 having played for the Pakistan U-19 side and being on the fringes of the full Pakistan test squad. He started slowly, as many overseas players do, on the early season wickets but gradually grew in confidence and ended the summer with 807 runs and 35 wickets, bowling a mixture of seamers and off spin. His biggest contribution came in a Ramsbottom Cup run which saw him finish with an average of over 300 and a match winning 91 not out in the Final against Earby. In 2002 his form and with it his confidence deserted him in one of the wettest summers for years. He finished the season with only 471 runs and 13 wickets and was not re-engaged for the 2003 season.

Farhan went on to play a solitary test for Pakistan against Bangladesh, and continued to play first class and List A cricket until retiring from the professional game in 2009. His professional career stats can be found via cricinfo
