JOHANNESBURG - Bizhub Highveld Lions all-rounder Chris Morris has praised the impact of all-rounder Azhar Mahmood on the Lions squad.

The soon to be 39 year old former Pakistani international is one Geoff Toyona's foreign exports for this year's RAM Slam T20 competition.

Morris says Mahmood brings a lot to the team both on and off the field.

"He's very good in the change room. He's a great guy. It's one thing to have a big personality and another to have a big cricket personality, and he's both. He's a fantastic human being, and he's got a lot of advice to offer. I'm trying to rack his brain as much as I can when it comes to bowling and slogging at the death. He's been a great addition so far and I look forward to playing more cricket with him."
