Syed Maqsood

Name:              Syed Maqsood, a.k.a  “Fast Syed”
Role:                Right arm medium, Middle/Lower order bat, WCL Umpire
Fav Stroke:      Going over the long off
Weapon:          Fast and straight.

Syed is an entertaining cricketer both on and off the field. He too is an import from the tennis ball cricket league and has adapted well and excelled in the 40 over format. He has plenty of big hits to his credit and likes to score quickly. When he gets going, runs come quick and steady. Always showcasing the latest in equipment, he bats with a bat that has a graphite handle (endorsed by Ricky Ponting??) instead of cane. He is quick with the ball and can get us crucial wickets with some that buzz in. Syed is agile and patrols the fence for HCC. He is one of our hard working and quicker fielders. Syed also takes his responsibilities of umpiring seriously and is the authoritative resource for "what does the WCL book say". A sharp cricketing mind and assists the team with the correct WCL rules during our games.

The LOL part: Syed has managed to take technology and innovation to the next level. From hi tech bats with microchips embed in them, to battery powered water bottles that auto mix lemonade, He has it all. A fun character who is cracking up jokes all the time. Oops we almost forgot the new MoM prize he won – The Swanky new Infinity G37x sponsored by HCC, paid by Syed J !!!!!
