Mohammad Nawaz is a Pakistani professional cricketer who has represented his country primarily in the limited-overs versions of the sport (ODIs and T20Is), as a bowling all-rounder. Very early in his international career, in late 2016, he had also played 3 test matches for Pakistan but had not added to that tally as of October 2021. Before breaking into the senior national team in all 3 formats in the same year (2016), he had participated in the 2012 Under-19 ICC Cricket World Cup. He had recorded a frugal spell of 4/20 in the team’s 2nd group stage match, against Scotland. In the 7th place playoff match, he had scored 82 runs in a team total of 235/8 which was overhauled by Bangladesh to hand Pakistan a disappointing 8th-place finish. In the Pakistani domestic circuit, he has played for the regional teams Rawalpindi Rams (2012–2015), Northern (2019-Present), Balochistan, Rawalpindi, and Federal Areas; as well as the departmental team National Bank of Pakistan (2014-2019) across all 3 formats.

Mohammad Nawaz Facts
- His very first international match for Pakistan was a disappointing affair. In a 2016 Asia Cup fixture against the UAE, he had been smashed for 38 runs from just 3 overs. His ODI debut, in August 2016, had turned out much better. He had scored a half-century against Ireland.
- A month later, he had produced a ‘Player of the Match’ winning performance in the final of the 2016–17 season of the National T20 Cup (Pakistan’s premier domestic T20 competition).
- In his debut match for Quetta Gladiators, against Islamabad United in the 2016 edition of the PSL, he had produced a scintillating 4-over spell where he had picked up 4 wickets for just 13 runs. He had finished the tournament as the 4th-highest wicket-taker in the season. His performance in the initial phase of the PSL had resulted in a call-up to Pakistan’s 2016 ICC World Twenty20 squad.
- A valuable spin-bowling allrounder, he has been featured in franchise-based T20 leagues around the world, turning out for Quetta Gladiators (2016–Present) in the PSL (Pakistan Super League); Cape Town Blitz (2018–Present) in the MSL (Mzansi Super League); and Sylhet Sixers (2018-19), and Rajshahi Royals (2019-20-Present) in the BPL (Bangladesh Premier League).
