Overview

Junaid Khan (Pashtoجنید خان‎; born 24 December 1989, Swabi District) is a Pakistani international cricketer who bowls left arm fast. He is the first player from Swabi to qualify for the Pakistan national cricket team, and his cousin, the leg-spinner Yasir Shah, followed his path later on.

After an injury to Sohail Tanvir on the eve of the 2011 World Cup, Khan was called up as his replacement, with no experience in international cricket. Khan did not play in the tournament and later made his ODI debut in April 2011. In June that year, Khan represented Lancashire County Cricket Club in English domestic cricket.[citation needed]

In August 2018, he was one of the thirty-three players to be awarded a central contract for the 2018–19 season by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).
