Sussex part with Amjad

Sussex have released seamer Amjad Khan after a broken wrist disrupted his 2013 season

Sussex have released former Kent and England seamer Amjad Khan following the expiration of his contract.

The 33-year-old leaves Sussex after three seasons at the BrightonandHoveJobs.com County Ground, although a broken wrist limited Amjad to a handful of second XI appearances last term.

Sussex's professional cricket manager Mark Robinson said: “Amjad will be sorely missed by everyone at the club.

“He's been a match-winner for us in all formats and set great examples to our younger bowlers. He has been unlucky with his wrist injury sustained in the final year of his contract and we wish him all the best for the future.”

Amjad, who has 347 first-class wickets to his name, added: “I'd like to thank all the players and the staff at Sussex, who have helped make the last three years so enjoyable. My departure is an amicable one and I look forward to seeing my friends and former colleagues be successful in the future.”

Amjad is currently in South Africa taking part in a cricket outreach programme and training with the Warriors franchise.
