Lahore, May 2 (ANI): Pakistan fast bowler Rana Naved ul Hasan would be returning to England soon to join Yorkshire for the second year of his deal with the county team.

The Yorkshire team management had given Hasan a deadline to rejoin the squad by May 01 or have his contract terminated, after the bowler failed to secure a proper work permit.

It was due to the efforts of a cricket loving administrator in Abu Dhabi, where the majority of Pakistan’s passport issues are dealt with at the moment that Hasan was able to obtain the necessary documents to play in Britain, The Nation reports.

“It is tremendous to have Rana Naved back at Headingley Carnegie and we are delighted this matter has now been resolved. Rana had been struggling to push his paperwork through the system,” Yorkshire’s Chief Executive Stewart Regan said.

“Cricket is a universal language and it seems cricket fans in the UAE were prompted to cut the red tape to assist Rana’s return to Yorkshire,” Regan added. (ANI)
