He has represented Peshawar Zalmi in all 7 seasons.
He was appointed as the team captain of Peshawar Zalmi in the 5 edition.
He has served Pakistan on the International Stage and his famous performances include the 5-wicket haul against India in the WC '11 semi-final and his fierce spell against the Australians in the quarter-final of the WC’15.
He is a left-arm fast bowler. Left-arm fast bowler Wahab Riaz has the speed to trouble the greatest, but he hasn't always used it consistently. He has profited from Pakistan's propensity for having bad luck with fast bowlers; as a result of Shoaib Akhtar, Mohammad Asif, and Umar Gul's many injuries, Riaz entered the national spotlight earlier than he may have reasonably anticipated. He has since experienced some successful runs in international cricket, but consistency hasn't been his strong suit. Riaz became the ninth Pakistani bowler to record five wickets on debut when he grabbed five for 63 in his Test debut against England at The Oval in 2010. Andrew Strauss, Jonathan Trott, and Kevin Pietersen were among his victims. He was, however, axed from the Test team after having unsuccessful tours of West Indies and New Zealand in 2011. He has taken wickets in ODIs, but he has also given up a lot of runs while bowling. His finest performance in ODIs came in a crucial match against India in the World Cup semi-final in Mohali when he took 5 for 46, including the wickets of Virender Sehwag, Virat Kohli, Yuvraj Singh, and MS Dhoni. However, it wasn't enough to win the match. He has since been a contender for Pakistan's ODI team, despite the fact that his economy rate remains an issue.
