Samiullah Khan Bio

Mohammad Samiullah Khan Niazi, hailing from Mianwalli, Pakistan, is a talented and rapidly improving left-arm medium-fast bowler. Despite his relatively short career in first-class cricket, Samiullah has already left a lasting impression with his exceptional bowling skills.

Samiullah made his first-class debut for Sargodha in the 2002-03 season, and it was clear from the outset that he possessed immense potential. Over the course of just four seasons, he managed to amass an impressive tally of 138 wickets in 32 matches, all at an economical bowling average of 19.48 runs per wicket. Such remarkable statistics highlight his ability to consistently trouble batsmen and make vital breakthroughs for his team.

After his stint with Sargodha, Samiullah went on to represent Faisalabad and Sui Northern Gas Pipeline Limited (SNGPL) in the domestic circuit. During the 2005-06 season, he emerged as the leading wicket-taker in first-class matches for a significant period, ending with an impressive haul of 75 wickets at a remarkable average of 18.36 runs per dismissal. Although he was eventually overtaken by PIA and former Pakistan pace bowler Fazl-e-Akbar, Samiullah’s performance was a testament to his commitment and skill.

As a testament to his remarkable performances, Samiullah was called up by the team management for the highly prestigious tour of England. His inclusion was necessitated by the withdrawal of Rana Naved-ul-Hasan due to injury and the fitness concerns faced by other pace bowlers. Despite not initially being selected as part of the reserves for the senior team’s tour, he was included in a similar list for the Pakistan A squad that toured Australia, participating in the esteemed four-nation Top End Series.

While Samiullah may still be a relatively new face on the international cricket scene, he is no stranger to English conditions. He was a member of the successful Faisalabad Wolves team that emerged victorious in the International Twenty20 Championship organized by Leicestershire in England. Additionally, he showcased his exceptional bowling skills in the EurAsia Cricket Series held in Abu Dhabi, where he played a crucial role in guiding the champion Pakistan A team to victory in April 2007.

Following his impressive performances in the 2007-08 season, playing a pivotal role in SNGPL’s triumph in the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy, Samiullah was rewarded with his One-Day International (ODI) debut against Zimbabwe. This milestone marked the beginning of what promises to be a prolific international career, as he aims to further solidify his reputation as an outstanding fast bowler.

With his knack for picking up wickets and his ability to maintain a consistent line and length, Mohammad Samiullah Khan Niazi is undoubtedly a force to be reckoned with in the world of cricket. As he continues to refine his skills and gain valuable experience, it is only a matter of time before he becomes a household name in Pakistani cricket and cements his position as one of the country’s finest fast bowlers.
