Hassan Azad Bio

Mohammad Hassan Azad is an outstanding cricket player hailing from England. Born in Quetta, Azad’s family moved to England when he was 15, and it was then that he began to showcase his talent on the cricket field.

During his childhood, Azad played for Pakistan Under-15s, demonstrating his raw potential and catching the attention of the cricket community. Recognizing his talent, he emailed Nottinghamshire ahead of his arrival to inform them of his presence. However, despite high expectations, his performances did not meet the desired standards, causing him to be released by the club’s academy at the end of 2014.

Undeterred by this setback, Azad made the wise decision to pursue a Chemical Engineering degree at Loughborough University while simultaneously honing his cricket skills. Under the guidance of MCCU coach Russell Cobb, Azad continued his development as a batsman, setting his sights on a future in the professional cricket arena.

Azad’s hard work and dedication began to pay off when he made an impressive 99 off 237 balls on his second first-class appearance against a strong Notts attack. This remarkable performance caught the attention of Leicestershire, who offered him a trial. Azad seized the opportunity and further showcased his talent by scoring an unbeaten 179 while chasing 399 runs in a 50-over game against Kent in his first appearance for the 2nd XI.

Impressed by his consistent performances, Leicestershire offered Azad a six-month contract for the 2019 season, firmly establishing him as a member of the first team. Azad’s skill and resilience were on full display throughout the season, highlighted by his twin centuries against Gloucestershire in June. By the end of the season, he was second only to Dom Sibley in terms of runs scored and balls faced across both divisions, solidifying his place in the team and securing another year on his contract at Grace Road.

Azad’s playing style is often described as obdurate, indicating his ability to remain steadfast and resilient at the batting crease. He possesses a strong defensive technique and has the ability to occupy the crease for long periods of time, making him a valuable asset to any team. With his solid performances and promising career trajectory, Azad has become a rising star in English cricket.

Off the field, Azad is known for his humble nature and strong work ethic. He continues to balance his cricketing career with his academic pursuits, maintaining a high level of discipline in both areas. Azad’s commitment to his education demonstrates his determination to have a well-rounded future beyond the cricket field.

As Azad’s career continues to evolve, it is clear that he has the potential to achieve great success in the cricketing world. His journey from Quetta to England is a testament to his tenacity, resilience, and unwavering love for the game. Cricket fans can look forward to witnessing further achievements from this promising young talent in the years to come.
