Shahbaz Nadeem (born 12 August 1989)[1] is an Indian International cricketer who is a slow left-arm orthodox bowler. He made his first-class cricket debut in December 2004.[2] He has played for Bihar Under-14 side and Indian U-19s and currently plays for Jharkhand and Sunrisers Hyderabad.[3]

In September 2018, he set a new record for the best bowling figures in a List A cricket match by taking eight wickets for 10 runs against Rajsathan whilst playing for Jharkhand. He made his International debut for the India national cricket team in 2019.

Domestic career[edit]

Even before he made his first-class debut, Nadeem was seen as the next big left-arm slow bowler. He has a classical, flowing lefty's action, is naturally inclined to bowl round the wicket to right-hand batsmen, and has the boldness to experiment with varying degrees of loop. In addition, he is an athletic fielder and a fixture at point for his state and the East Zone side. He came into the reckoning with a nine-wicket haul against Sikkim in an Under-15 game in 2002. His first-class debut earlier this season was impressive, but he found himself under the hammer against Australia in the Under-19 one-dayers, and played only one match in the Under-19 World Cup.

In his early life, he stayed in Siwandih, Bokaro Steel City, and practiced in Bokaro Training Hostel.

In the 2012 IPL season Nadeem made a breakthrough in the Delhi Daredevils team with impressive performances. He was also one of the seven players nominated for IPL Rising Star of the year award.

He finished consecutive years - The 2015–16 Ranji Trophy and 2016–17 Ranji Trophy seasons with the most wickets in the competition, with a total of 51 and 56 dismissals respectively.[4] He was also the leading wicket-taker for Jharkhand in the 2017–18 Ranji Trophy, with 18 dismissals in four matches.[5]

In January 2018, he was bought by the Delhi Daredevils in the 2018 IPL auction.[6] In July 2018, he was named in the squad for India Red for the 2018–19 Duleep Trophy.[7]

In September 2018, in the 2018–19 Vijay Hazare Trophy fixture between Rajasthan and Jharkhand, Nadeem set a new List A cricket record, taking eight wickets for ten runs from 10 overs.[8][9] He also took hatrick wickets while achieving that feat. He was the leading wicket-taker in the tournament, with twenty-four dismissals in nine matches.[10]

In October 2018, he was named in India B's squad for the 2018–19 Deodhar Trophy.[11] In October 2019, he was named in India B's squad for the 2019–20 Deodhar Trophy.[12]

International career[edit]

In October 2018, he was named in India's Twenty20 International (T20I) squad for their series against the West indies, but he did not play.[13] In October 2019, he was added to India's squad for the third Test match against South Africa, as cover for Kuldeep Yadav.[14] He made his Test debut for India, against South Africa, on 19 October 2019.[15]
