Awais Zia is a prolific batsman who enjoyed a taste of international cricket, playing 5 T20I’s for Pakistan between 2012 and 2014, but hasn’t featured since. Nevertheless, the left-hander has continued to churn domestic runs aplenty, across the three formats, since.

An explosive batsman, who often opens the innings, Zia boasts a tremendous domestic record. Since his first-class debut in February 2007, he has racked up over 10,000 runs with 15 centuries and a highest score of 232. He has batting averages in the high-30s in both first-class and List A cricket and continues to star in T20 cricket.

Zia has also enjoyed plenty of success in UK league cricket, to include stints with Burnham (2014), Newcastle and Hartshill (2016), and Aston Hall (2018). During these three seasons, he has belted 9 centuries amongst 2,651 runs at 53.02 – a tally that includes 300 fours and 61 sixes.

Whilst known predominantly for his run feats in Pakistan, Zia is a more than useful off-spinner, who has started to bowl more in domestic cricket in recent years, as he has done during his UK stints. Across his three seasons, Zia has picked up 92 wickets at 22.03 with best figures of 7-33.

During his last season abroad, he struck 5 of his 9 overseas centuries for Aston Hall in the Yorkshire ECB South Premier League and Cup competitions, alongside 30 wickets.

The talented Pakistani all-rounder is now eager to return for a fourth stint in 2021. Now a UKCC level 2 coach, he is happy to get fully involved with coaching during the 2021 season.
