Azharullah, 33, joined Northamptonshire in 2013 from the Yorkshire leagues and quickly made an impact for the club, celebrating the Steelbacks’ first T20 triumph at Edgbaston in which he played a starring role, becoming acknowledged as one of the most skilful white-ball bowlers in the country with controlled swing and a devastating yorker to baffle the best batsmen.
The seamer finished 2014 as the Clubs leading wicket taker in the County Championship and went on to claim a further 45 first class wickets the following season.
The right-arm quick has taken an impressive 172 first class wickets for Northamptonshire in 58 appearances, 53 List A wickets and a total of 70 T20 scalps during his time at the club.
Ray Payne, Chief Executive at Northamptonshire, said: “We’d like to thank Azhar for his contribution to what has been a very successful 4 years for the club. He has proved to be a great addition to the squad and has played an integral role in our achievements.
“I’d like to personally thank him for his services to the club and wish him all the best for his future endeavours
