Fayyaz Butt, Oman’s right-arm pacer, rose to the occasion, rattling Bangladesh’s batting line-up with three wickets in the first round of the 2021 T20 World Cup. Fayyaz represented Pakistan in the Under-19 Cricket World Cup before becoming a star of the Oman national team.
Fayyaz was a leading fast bowler at the Under-19 level, and he was named player of the match in Pakistan’s quarter-final match against archrival India in the 2010 U-19 Cricket World Cup. Fayyaz took four wickets in the first over of the match, including current Indian openers KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal.
Pakistan won the match by two wickets after chasing down a 118-run target in a rain-affected match. The talented fast bowler was regarded as a fine seamer during his Under-19 days, but he was unable to play a single first-class match in Pakistan. Fayyaz made the decision to relocate to Oman due to a lack of opportunities in Pakistan. He will be determined to perform in Oman’s next match against Scotland in order to help the country qualify for the Super 12s stage for the first time in its history.
