Farhan Iqtidar is one of the most versatile cricketer of our club. He bats early order, is an occasional keeper and also rolls his arm with medium pacers when required. Farhan works hard on his fielding and often makes knotty catches look simple.
His technique is dominated by the bottom hand, he is a powerful square cutter and puller, and good off his legs to mid wicket. His leg side flicks off good length deliveries to boundaries are a treat to watch.
Farhan is a seasoned cricketer with experience playing club cricket in England and United Arab Emirates. His game strategy is his best forte; and controlled aggressiveness is his best weaponry.
Farhan is also a certified Umpire by Cricket Canada; he officiates game on weekends when his team is not playing.

OCC’s First Division team did not have their best of seasons, but had lots of bright positives. Farhan was definitely one of them, and his fighting half century was just a glimpse of what he would bring to the team in the upcoming seasons.
