Brisbane Heat fans can rejoice knowing that their prodigy spinner Mujeeb Ur Rahman has signed on for his fourth campaign with the BBL side.
Mujeeb quickly became a fan favourite with his deceptive bowling, and the idea of him playing elsewhere would have tormented them.
The Afghanistan off-break spinner currently sits in fifth on the club’s all time wickets leaderboard and will look to climb further this season, despite being just 20 years of age.
In the BBL|10 season, Mujeeb played just eight games, he took 14 wickets before representing his national team in the later stages of the competition.
Ahead of the BBL|11 campaign, Mujeeb is happy to back in Heat colours once again. This season, he’s very much got his eyes on the prize.
“I’m very pleased to have re-signed for Brisbane Heat for my fourth season with them,” Mujeeb said.
“I’m very happy there, they’re great guys. The fans always support me and the team so I hope we can win the Big Bash for them.”

New Brisbane Heat head coach Wade Seccombe has been in contact with former Heat head coach Darren Lehmann regarding Mujeeb’s development.
“He [Mujeeb] was in the Northern Superchargers team that Darren Lehmann was coaching in the Hundred earlier this month, and Darren has reported back to us that he keeps getting better each time he sees him,” Seccombe said.
“It’s exciting for us to have him in the line-up again. It makes a big difference to how we match-up with other teams, and his skills and controls enables other players in our squad to come to the fore as well.
“It was notable how Mitch Swepson and Matt Kuhnemann enjoyed working with him last season so we’re looking forward to him arriving closer to the tournament and getting ready to go.”
Brisbane still have six spots available in the BBL|11 squad including one more international player after Mujeeb joins fellow returning international, Tom Banton, back with the Heat.
