Pakistan’s star pacer, Haris Rauf has made a name for himself in a short time as one of the leading fast bowlers in limited-overs cricket.

The 27-year old rose to prominence after scintillating performances in the Big Bash League three years ago and is one of the most loved international cricketers in Australia. His exploits in the BBL paved the way for him to become one of the top stars in international cricket and he has not looked back ever since.
