Nottinghamshire and England bowler Stuart Broad has backed new recruit Ajmal Shahzad to shine at Trent Bridge.

Shahzad has signed a three-year deal at Trent Bridge having already enjoyed a fruitful first class wicket that has yielded 155 wickets.

"I think he is a great signing," said Broad.

"I can see him charging in and taking a lot of wickets and those win you championships.

"He's a heart and soul type of player and he puts everything into every ball he bowls.

"I'm sure he will do well at Trent Bridge because Mick has a great knack of getting the best out of players."
