Sohaib Maqsood was born on April 15, 1987, in Multan, Pakistan. He bats in the middle order and is a right-handed batsman. Inzamam-ul-Haq, who had a similar attacking batting style, is often compared to Maqsood.
Maqsood started his cricket career as a right-arm off-spinner, making his first-class debut for Multan in 2004.
Unfortunately, Maqsood was sidelined for three years due to a back injury, and by the time he returned in the 2007-08 season, his bowling days were finished. He was used as a batsman in the middle of the order.
Maqsood, on the other hand, found success in domestic cricket during the 2010-11 season, scoring 951 runs.
The next season, he added another 1020 runs to his tally, and he continued to do well in the seasons after that.
For Maqsood, good successes in domestic cricket meant only one thing: a call to Pakistan’s senior cricket team.
Maqsood earned his first T20 chance in August 2013 against Zimbabwe.
In November, he made his One-Day International debut against South Africa, scoring 56 runs off 54 balls.
Rise to Glory
Maqsood is a first-class cricketer for the Multan Sultans, and he has become a revelation in domestic cricket.
In the Pakistan Super League, he scored 85 from 42 balls to help Multans defeat Peshawar Zalmi on March 6, 2018.
In total, he has played 67 first-class games and scored 4072 runs across all formats.
