In less than a year after making his List A debut for Islamabad in 2016, Shadab Khan became part of the national team as well as signed a contract in the Big Bash League in Australia. Achieved at the age of 18, these brilliant results made him a prodigy spinner in a country that has always boasted excellent pacers. Four years into his international career, Shadab remains a key player for Pakistan.

ODI career

Although he debuted in the shortest format of the game, it is the fifty-overs format where Shadab Khan has made most appearances for Pakistan. He has played 43 ODIs to date, taking 59 wickets at an average of 29.66 and an economy rate of 5.02. Leg-spinner Shadab Khan has a conventional bowling action but turns the ball both ways. He has taken four-wicket hauls three times in One Day Internationals with the best one of 4 for 28 playing against Zimbabwe at Bulawayo. He made his ODI debut against West Indies in April 2017 at Providence and got 2 for 52 on debut. He played seven matches in the 2019 World Cup for Pakistan, taking nine wickets at a strike rate of 38.6. He excellently performed with the bat, averaging 25.92 with three half-centuries and a best of 54 in his career.

Test career

Despite being a standout player in the limited-overs, Shadab Khan is yet to begin his Test career. So far he has only represented Pakistan five times in Test matches. His Test debut came against West Indies at Bridgetown in 2017 and he played his last Test against South Africa at Johannesburg early last year. In five Tests, he has taken 12 wickets at an average of 38.83 with the best one of 3 for 31. Veteran Yasir Shah’s presence as a leg-spinner has affected Shadab’s chances in the longest format of the game. However, being only 21 years old, he still has time to make a resounding comeback. His prowess with the bat – he has three half-centuries in 9 batting innings in the format – should make him a great all-rounder for the team.

T20I career

In 40 T20Is, Shadab Khan has taken 48 wickets at an average of 20.87. Impressively, he has an economy rate of 7.03 in the format. For an attacking leg-spinner, Shadab Khan’s numbers are quite top-notch. He made his T20I debut in March 2017 against West Indies at Bridgetown with his last game played earlier this year against Bangladesh at Lahore. He hasn’t had too many chances with the bat in the shortest format of the game and has only batted in 14 innings, scoring a maximum of 29.

T20 franchise cricket

At the franchise level, Shadab Khan has starred as an all-rounder, particularly in the Pakistan Super League (PSL). He has played in the Big Bash League with Brisbane Heat, in the PSL with Islamabad United, in the Caribbean Premier League with Trinbago Knight Riders and Guyana Amazon Warriors and in the Bangladesh Premier League with Dhaka Platoons. He also played in the Global T20 tournament in Canada. In 123 T20 games, Shadab has 144 wickets at an average of 21.31 and an economy rate of 6.91. He also has 829 runs in the format at a strike rate of 128.21. He has been the fifth-highest run-getter in the 2020 edition of the PSL with 263 runs at an average of 37.57 and a strike rate of around 160.
