Ateeq Javid to leave Warwickshire to join Leicestershire

Warwickshire all-rounder Ateeq Javid is to leave the Bears to become a fox at the end of the 2017 season.

The 25-year old, who has scored 2,117 runs and claimed 57 wickets across all three formats of the game, has signed a two-year deal at Grace Road.

“I want to thank everyone who has helped my development over the years,” Javid said “The time is right to make a move, fight for a place and hopefully play regular cricket across all formats.”

Birmingham-born Javid came through the Warwickshire youth system and helped the Bears win the T20 Blast in 2014, taking the wicket of Kevin Pietersen against Surrey in the semi-final.

He also took 2-15 in the Bears’ eight-wicket win in the One-Day Cup final at Lord’s in 2016.
