Wahab Riaz: A Brief Biography

Wahab Riaz Biography


Wahab Riaz is a Pakistani cricketer who was born on June 28, 1985, in Lahore, Pakistan. He plays as a right arm fast bowler. Riaz is known for his spell against Shane Watson during 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup.


Background

Wahab was seriously engaged with cricket in the year 2000 but made his domestic debut during the 2001-02 season. He was also part of the Pakistan A and Pakistan U19 sides.


Debut

Wahab made his test debut against England during 2010 series and took a fifer in the first innings of that match. After that, he went to South Africa tour and took major wickets of Hashim Amla and Graeme Smith. However, he suffered an injury for which he remained out of the team.


Rise to Glory

Riaz's performance against India in the semi-final match of 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup was a major turning point in his career. He took a fifer in that match. Though Pakistan lost that match, Wahab came into the limelight and was selected for the subsequent tour of South Africa.


Low Points

Wahab took wickets in almost all matches he played but his economy rate was an issue. This was the reason that he didn't play for Pakistan on a regular basis. For instance, in 2016, he conceded 110 runs in his quota of 10 overs, which are the second worst figures ever in ODIs.


Club Career

In the 2016 Pakistan Super League, Wahab Riaz was bought by Peshawar Zalmi for $140,000. In 2017 also, he was retained by Peshawar, won the tournament and Riaz ended as the leading wicket taker with 30 wickets in 19 matches.


Records

Wahab’s spell against Shane Watson during the quarter final match of 2015 ICC cricket world cup, was very applauded. Kevin Pietersen described that as the "Best spell of bowling by a foreigner on Aussie soil for years". Brian Lara also tweeted "I want to meet with this Riaz guy".
