Mushtaq is in at Surrey
MUSHTAQ Ahmed has joined Surrey County Cricket Club on a short-term deal.
The World Cup winner and former Wisden Cricketer of the Year has previously worked with team director Chris Adams during their successful time at Sussex, where in 2003 he became the first bowler in five years to take more than 100 wickets during an English summer, an achievement he repeated in 2006.
He will join the club as a coach and mentor on a month-long contract from June 20.
Adams said: "He will be a magic guy to have around in terms of the environment in the dressing room and is one of the best people I've ever come across in terms of assessing the mood of a side and having a positive influence on tactics both before and during a game.

"We have a few young spinners at the club at the moment so there is also plenty of work to be done there as well – and I also want to use him with the second XI and PG Academy, as well as setting up some sessions with batsmen from throughout the club on how to play spin.
"We've got him here for a month and we'll make sure we'll work him hard."
