Haris Rauf is a Pakistani professional cricketer. The right-arm pacer began his international journey with a first T20 cap in January 2020. He made his ODI debut in late October 2020 versus Zimbabwe. Along with Hasan Ali and Shaheen Shah Afridi, he is part of a formidable bowling line-up in white-ball cricket. In the Pakistan Super League, he currently represents the Lahore Qalandars.
Now under the wings of the legendary Waqar Younis, Rauf can become a genuine top-class bowler. He wants to make his mark in red-ball cricket now. Although not very experienced in first-class cricket, Pakistan might give him a chance in the next test series.
Rauf is 27-years-old. He was born on 7 November 1993 in Rawalpindi, Pakistan.
Haris Rauf is 5 feet 11 inches tall (180cms).
Rauf was more interested in football in his college days. He first tried his luck in cricket in September 2017 by joining a local university team in Islamabad. He was spotted by Aaqib Javed, who invited him to play him in Australia. The speedster never looked back, and his rise in the game has been spectacular.
In October 2019, the Pakistan Cricket Board named him one of the six players to watch out for in the National T20 Cup tournament. He then signed up for the Melbourne Stars for the 2019-20 Big Bash League season as a replacement for none other than the great Dale Steyn. He took a hat-trick in the league against the Sydney Thunder.
Rauf has appeared in 7 ODIs so far and is yet to play Test cricket.
