Muckamore have signed experienced Pakistan all-rounder Shoaib Khan for the forthcoming season.
Shoaib Khan (39) is a stalwart of Pakistani domestic cricket, boasting an enviable record spanning 18 seasons and 247 matches across the 3 formats.

His 2016 summer was his most successful, hitting 899 runs averaging a Bradman-esque 99.89. He was also instrumental with club coaching, utilising his ECB level 2 coaching qualification.
