Naz caused a sensation when he walked out on AXIX XI, disgruntled by a sore lack of opportunities at the club that had drafted him at pick 9 ten seasons earlier. At a basement starting price he had all the big players of the CC world making offers, 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.

Naz had massive shoes to fill in replacing the departing P.K. Thomson as the club's premier spin bowler, and he took to the task better than anyone could have predicted. Thriving on flat tracks in his first season at the Eagles, he took bags of wickets for fun and T.T. Brearley's club record of 86 wickets in a season was briefly in danger. Naz eventually finished with 77 at 30, including no fewer than seven five-wicket hauls and a best of 7/64 that single-handedly almost engineered a remarkable victory over Anti-Inertia (one of the losing bidders for his services). The following season, in tier 2, saw Naz's performances hit even greater heights, as a string of early-season hauls saw him effectively keep the Eagles in the hunt for promotion, and put him on track for a 100-wicket season before his teammates started to pick up the slack. This time, he finished with 85 wickets at 25, missing Brearley's record by just one wicket.

One could hardly imagine a more sensational impact, and he has created massive expectations for next season and the remainder of his career. The question is, can he live up to them?
