He has been a part of the Abu Dhabi T10 tournament for the last two editions, and featured in Bangladesh Premier League 2022 as well. In the Indian Premier League 2022 Auction, he was bought by the Sunrisers Hyderabad team. If his opportunity in IPL arrives, Farooqi would look to learn well and make it big in next few years to be a permanent member of the Afghanistan team.
Fazalhaq Farooqui was impressive in the U19 World Cup 2019/20 with 5 wickets in 4 matches. Soon, he was named in the Afghanistan test squad for Zimbabwe series, but has not featured in test matches. He made his T20I debut against Zimbabwe in March 2021, and played his first ODI fixture against Netherlands in January 2022. In both the formats, he has returned with 1 wicket each.
In First Class cricket, he has been successful with 22 scalps in 12 matches. In List A format, he has 7 wickets in 7 matches, and 3 wickets in 5 T20s. In 2021/22 Abu Dhabi T10, he has scalped 7 wickets in 12 matches. While, he bagged 2 wickets in 3 matches of Bangladesh Premier League 2022.
Fazalhaq Farooqi was roped in as a net bowler for Kings XI Punjab team in Indian Premier League 2020. Then he was included as a net bowler by Chennai Super Kings in IPL 2021. But, he finally earned a contract from the Sunrisers Hyderabad team in the Indian Premier League 2022 Auction for a bid amount of 50 Lakhs. With fine pace and variations in his armory, he would look to be a good support to the bowling unit of the franchise in coming years.
