Few players have made such an unexpectedly sensational impact on CC as K.A. Naz. Plucked from relative obscurity - although he'd been drafted at pick 9 by AXIX XI, he had struggled for opportunities there - he took to the Eagles' flat home decks with aplomb. The feats of the man he replaced in the side - P.K. Thomson, the Eagles' sixth most successful bowler of all time - rapidly became a distant memory as Naz set about taking bags of wickets for fun. By the time his career at the Eagles was over, he had taken 419 wickets in just 77 matches - a strike rate of close to five and a half wickets per game, well ahead of the likes of Thomson, Hancock and Swann, and bettered only by G.W. Woodman.
Naz had attracted bids of over 500,000 when he walked out on AXIX XI, but the Green Valley Eagles, desperate to inject quality into their struggling bowling lineup, outbid them all. Naz had dominated at junior level in all three disciplines to earn his place in the top ten of the mid-season 25 draft, and in the top flight he developed into a big-turning offbreak bowler and hard-hitting lower-order batsman. However, inexplicably given his bowling average of under 20, he played just 26 first-class games, the last coming in season 32, and played just a single competitive one-day game for AXIX in the intervening three seasons. This culminated in him departing the club, and the Eagles seized their opportunity.
Any question of whether Naz could fill Thomson's shoes was laid to rest as he racked up 47 wickets in his first seven matches for the club. His eventual tally of 77 wickets at 30 included no fewer than seven five-wicket hauls and a best of 7/64 that single-handedly almost engineered a remarkable victory over Anti-Inertia. It was not enough to keep the Eagles in tier 1; however, this proved a blessing for Naz individually, as against the lower standard of opponents in tier 2, he lifted his game to another level. 39 wickets in the first four matches, including consecutive 8-fors against 2005 And All That and ThePakiChamps, followed by a 7-for against Revolution, saw him briefly outpace the rest of the club's bowlers combined. His performances carried the team through a slow start that finished in them eventually earning promotion: Naz, for his part, finished with 85 wickets at 25, missing T.T. Brearley's club record by just one wicket.
Naz's pattern of dominance continued over the next two seasons: 63 wickets in season 38 couldn't keep the side from demoting again, before he scaled dizzying heights with 98 wickets at 24.6 the following season, including no fewer than ten five-wicket hauls and four ten-wicket matches. At this point, Naz had taken a scarcely believable 321 wickets in four seasons. In the following seasons, his performances dropped to mere human levels, with 51 wickets at 34 and 47 at 37. He was still capable of astounding feats - in season 41, he became the second Eagle to take nine wickets in an innings, against the North Eastern Magic - but he was no longer the consistent threat he had once been, and with B.N. Key assuming the mantle of premier spinner and N.M. Morey offering greater versatility, his place in the side was no longer guaranteed.
At the conclusion of season 41, Naz was transferred to 0 Circle Champs, where he is likely to play out his career. It signals the end of a short but remarkable era for the Eagles.
