Tabish Khan (33) is sharp, in-swing bowler whose domestic exploits have seen the speedster on the verge of national honours. Khan boasts an impressive first-class record comprising 524 first-class wickets averaging a tick over 23.12.

Quite remarkably, the Karachi quick has taken 35 five-wicket hauls (with another 26 four-wicket bags). He has 7 ten-wicket match hauls, including a career-best 14 wickets (7-38 and 7-52). He has two domestic hatricks – an all-bowled hatrick against a World XI whilst representing the Pakistan All Stars, alongside a double hatrick (4 wickets in 4 balls) against ZTBL.

Khan captured 77 wickets at 23.67 (7 x 5-fors) during the 2009/10 season culminating with Pakistan A selection against Sri Lanka. Two seasons later (2011/12), he topped the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy wicket-charts taking 61 wickets at 15.59 amongst another 77 wickets at 19.96 during his first-class season.

Since the 2011/12 season, Khan has continued his wicket-taking ways, with 324 wickets at 20.31, including season highlights in 2014/15 (42 wickets at 19.71) and 2016/17 (62 wickets at 13.54. Quite incredibly, he has taken 34 of his 35 five-wicket hauls since the 2009/10 season - 11 over the past three seasons.

Khan has generated national interest of late, gaining selection for the Pakistan A side who played 4 matches against their Sri Lankan counter-parts in May 2015. He has also been named in the Karachi Kings squad for the upcoming Pakistan Super League (PSL) in Feb/March 2018.

Khan is keen to return to the UK for another seasons league cricket in 2019, following stints with Beckenham last summer and Fox Lodge back in 2014. Last season, he helped the Kent League club to the Premiership courtesy of his 22 wickets at 20.36. A few seasons prior, he was a great success for Fox Lodge in the North West Cricket Union taking 27 wickets at 20.93 alongside 397 runs at 23.35 including a magnificent 131 against Clontarf (who finished third in the top tier of the Leinster Cricket Union in 2014) in the Bob Kerr Irish Senior Cup.  During the 2014 season, he also played two fixtures for the North-West Warriors in the Irish Inter-Provincial Competition taking 9 wickets at 17.89 including best bowling figures of 6-55.

It would be remiss not to mention his batting competence too, for he has 5 first-class half-centuries, 3 of which scored in recent seasons, plus his century against Clontaff to boot. The Sui Southern Gas Corporation star will be out to impress on his return for the 2019 season.
