Born in Copenhagen, Amjad made his only Test appearance for England at Trinidad in the final match of the 2009 Test series against West Indies.
An athletic seamer, he became the youngest player to have represented Denmark, having first appeared at the age of 17.
He moved to Kent in 1999 and, three years later, claimed an impressive 63 wickets in his first full season.
A couple of lean years followed, but Amjad rediscovered his best form in 2005, almost helping Kent to the LV= County Championship title with 55 wickets.
Having been granted British citizenship in 2006, he was included in the England A party to tour Bangladesh in early 2007 - only for injury to force him to withdraw.
But, after joining England’s one-day international party on the tour of India due to injuries, the paceman made his international debut in the aforementioned Test against West Indies.
He claimed just one wicket - that of Ramnaresh Sarwan - but still played in the solitary Twenty20 of that series, which England lost by six wickets.
Amjad, having been forced to leave before the end of the ODI series due to another injury, has not been seen since on the international stage.
The right-arm bowler moved to Sussex in 2010, enjoying an impressive debut season as the county re-established themselves in Division One of the championship following their promotion the previous year.
