Razai Ali Dar is an outstanding professional, who has enjoyed plenty of success around the globe for more than a decade.

A genuine all-rounder, Ali Dar has played 189 domestic matches in Pakistan, dating back to his first-class debut in December 2003. During this period, he has racked up over 5,000 runs and 100 wickets, across the three formats.

The left-arm spin-bowling all-rounder has also enjoyed stints in Bangladesh, in both the Bangladesh Premier League (Sylhet Royals – 2012; Rajshahi Kings – 2018) and Dhaka Premier League (Legends of Rupgani – 2017; Agrani Bank – 2018) in addition to Nepal's Dhangadhi Premier League (Rupandehi Challengers - 2019).

However, it’s in UK league cricket where he’s seriously impressed in his 10 seasons to date.

Ali Dar has shown incredible loyalty to his English clubs, only playing for three clubs, namely Surrey Championship club Dulwich (2007-09), Kent League club Beckenham (2010-12; 14-16), and for Home Counties Premier League club Burnham (2019).

Over his 189 matches for these clubs, Ali Dar has churned out 6,589 runs at 43.64 and taken 326 wickets at 16.29.

His numbers, though, have improved over the years, as he’s gained experience, justified by his 4,743 runs at 47.91 during his 6-season stint with Beckenham. Ali Dar enjoyed a purple patch in 2010-11 for the Kent club (who were Division 1 at the time). In 2010, he struck a brilliant 211 from 139 balls (26 hours and 10 sixes) against Whitstable en-route to a season tally of 451 runs at 75.17. Over the next three seasons, he averaged 47.81 (2011), 47 (2012), and 41.69 (2014). With the ball, his 2011 summer was his most prolific, topping the Kent League wicket charts with an incredible 60 wickets at 7.70 with his left-arm spin.

After a 2-year hiatus from league cricket, Ali Dar returned to play for Burnham in the strong Home Counties Premier League in 2019. Unsurprisingly, he impressed, hitting 758 runs at 54.14 alongside 30 wickets at 22.10.

Ali Dar is now seeking yet another UK stint in 2022. He represents, without doubt, one of the best left-arm spin bowling all-rounder options on the market.

As it stands, though, his 5 first-class games within the last 36 months (to qualify for a International Sportsperson Visa visa) will lapse on the 1st September 2021, therefore he is eager to not only organise a club, but his governing body endorsement prior to then.
