Abdul Razzaq Facts

  1. In November 1996, he made his One Day International (ODI) debut in a match against Zimbabwe. Three years later, he made his Test cricket debut for Pakistan in a match against Australia in Brisbane in November 1999.
  2. During the 1999–2000 Carlton and United Series, Abdul Razzaq performed well and was subsequently named man of the series for his all-round performance. During the tournament, he also scored a half-century and took five wickets during a match in Hobart against India as well as went on to hit former Australian fast bowler Glenn McGrath for 5 fours (totalling 20 runs in one over).
  3. In the Coca-Cola Champions Trophy 1999, he impressed with his bowling skills in a match against Sri Lanka in Sharjah in October 1999. After the Pakistani team was bowled out for 196 (with Abdul Razzaq remaining not out on 7), he showcased his skills as an all-rounder as he took his first five-wicket haul, dismissing Romesh Kaluwitharana, Mahela Jayawardene, Suresh Perera, Chaminda Vaas, and Chamara Silva to finish with match figures of 5/31. This helped in getting the Sri Lankan side to be also bowled out for 196 and that resulted in a tied match, having once been at 157/2.
  4. In 2000, Abdul Razzaq became the youngest bowler to take a hat-trick (which he took in a match against Sri Lanka) at the age of 20.
  5. It was reported in 2005 that he was suffering from eating too much spinach which resulted in Razzaq suffering from nausea and sickness while playing. This incident led to him being called ‘Popeye’ by his teammates.
  6. Abdul Razzaq was selected into Pakistan’s squad for the 2009 ICC World Twenty20 in England after fast bowler Yasir Arafat got injured. With this, he made a return to international cricket and became the first Indian Cricket League player whose ban was lifted by the Pakistan Cricket Board. He played a key role in Pakistan’s victory in the tournament as he took 5 wickets at an average of 14.80 and an economy rate of 5.92.
  7. Along with Nasir Jamshed, Abdul Razzaq set the highest 3rd wicket partnership ever in any form of T20s in 2009.
  8. At the domestic level, he was appointed as the head coach of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa cricket team. Under his guidance, the team won the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy, National T20 Cup, and Pakistan Cup in the 2020–21 season. He later became the head coach of Central Punjab for the 2021-22 domestic season.
  9. On September 6, 2021, Abdul Razzaq was appointed as the interim head coach of the Pakistan national team alongside Saqlain Mushtaq by PCB for the New Zealand tour of Pakistan 2021. However, the series eventually got called off.
  10. Abdul Razzaq was appointed as the head coach of the Hyderabad Hunters team for the inaugural season of the Pakistan Junior League in September 2022.
