Since his debut in both international and club T20 cricket, Pakistan’s right-arm pacer Haris Rauf has been considered as a crucial member of the national squad and one of the most dependable performances in the dying overs.
Rauf bowled the 19th over in the fourth game of the series against England, getting crucial wickets of Liam Dawson and Reece Topley while allowing just five runs to be scored, which helped change the outcome of the match.
The Men in Green defeated the visitors by three runs in a thrilling finale, and Haris Rauf was awarded player of the match for his match-winning bowling performance of 3 for 32, which also helped his team tie the series at 2-2.
The 28-year-old is now the leading fast bowler with the most wickets in T20 cricket since 2019, surpassing England’s right-arm pacer Chris Jordan, who has 168. In 127 games, Rauf has currently taken 170 wickets.
