BBL|08 Player Profile – Mujeeb Ur Rahman

Who is Mujeeb Ur Rahman?

This is a question a lot of Australian cricket fans will be asking this summer.

And it’s a very valid question, too.

The Afghanistani 17-year-old has only been on the scene for just over a year but has made waves wherever he’s played.

Mujeeb bowls flat, skiddy off spinners, which have proven hard to get away.

He took 14 wickets in 11 games for Kings XI Punjab in the most recent IPL, and his economy was an impressive 6.99.

Mujeeb then joined up with Hampshire for the English Vitality Blast, where he found wickets harder to come by, claiming only nine in 12 matches.

But his economy remained low, an impressive 7.09.

Finally in October he took 12 wickets in nine games in the Afghanistan Premier League.

So although his age may be a concern for you, he’s undoubtedly played plenty of twenty20 cricket this year.

Under the leadership of Brendon McCullum at the Heat he’ll get plenty of wicket-taking opportunities, so he could be a decent left-field selection.

He’ll set you back $93,800 in SuperCoach BBL. Will you be picking him?

  1. Nah, I don’t think so… There’s only 3 Heat players we should be selecting, and the best in the business does not include this 17-year-old… Maybe when he’s picked up some form later in the year…
