Srinagar:Abid Nabi, a Team India aspirant from Kashmir, is shining with both bat and ball while playing for a minor county in Britain these days.

This seamer from Srinagar, who can bat as well, had been signed by Tickhill cricket club, a minor county side in Yorkshire, to play division one cricket in the United Kingdom.

In all the matches he has played so far, Abid has made a huge impact in the league.

In his last match played against Denaby and Cadeby cricket club, he took five wickets and scored explosive 37 runs. Abid has played four matches so far, taking 22 wickets and scoring 135 runs, remaining unbeaten twice.

In his debut match, the talented Kashmiri cricketer, who has now become an important component of his club, took eight wickets and scored 34 runs in 14 balls.

''I am enjoying the game here. The club is treating me nicely and has provided me with all the facilities,'' Abid said over telephone from London.

''I am definitely improving a lot with some senior Yorkshire players providing me important tips,'' he added.

Abid will return to India in September to play Ranji Trophy matches for Jammu and Kashmir and other important domestic tournaments in the country.
