Baz, as he’s also known, hasn’t featured in international cricket since 2016 but played over 400 matches at that level.
Apart of Tests, ODIs and T20is, he’s been a dominant force in the world of domestic T20s.
He’s batted in 364 innings in that format, scoring 9922 runs at a strike rate of 136.49, and has played for a host of teams including Trinbago Knight Riders.
Among the highlights of his electrifying T20 career was his 158 not out from 73 balls for the Kolkata Knight Riders in the first ever Indian Premier League match back in 2008.
Baz is currently representing the Toronto Nationals in the Global T20 Canada.
