Rising Star Middle Order Batter Kashif Ali makes his First Class Debut for Worcestershire:
Rising star and middle order batsman Kashif Ali made his first class debut for Worcestershire Cricket Club in their game against Derbyshire on Monday.

His brilliant innings and great bowling by the worcestershire bowlers put their side in a strong position on the end of Day 1 as they bundled Derbyshire for just 130 runs and are currently 141/5 leading by 11 runs in the first innings.
Kashif was the first product of the South Asian Cricket Academy to sign a professional contract with a first-class county earlier this season as he was signed signed by Derbyshire on a short term contract until the end of the 2022 season, after an impressive trial period for the Seconds.

Having three hundreds and four fifties in his last seven knocks for the seconds was a testament to his potential as he continued his great form with the bat and reached a 72-ball half-century in the first innings.
