Atif Sheikh penned a two-year contract at Leicestershire in July 2014 after a string of impressive performances while on trial at the Club.
The left armer bowled with pace and hostility against the touring India side, and made the headlines in the national newspapers as a result.
Sheikh had previously bowled well in the Second XI for a couple of seasons, and built on the India performance by taking 6-49 in the first innings of the recent Championship win against Worcestershire.
The 23-year-old made one first-class appearance for former county Derbyshire in 2010, taking five wickets in the game against Gloucestershire.
