He is a seasoned campainor for the Sialkot Stallions. He is currently of the best left-arm spinner in the world. Abdur Rehman made his debut for Pakistan during the home ODI series against West Indies at the age of 26. He has done well not only at the domestic level but even at the international stage. Rehman's rise to fame dates back to 1999 when he grabbed a five-for and a six-wicket haul in successive matches while representing Pakistan U-19 against South Africa. In his early years, Rehman's opportunities on the international circuit were limited, partly because of the abundance of spinners in the Pakistani line-up. Rehman's Test debut was memorable as he took eight wickets at home against South Africa in 2007. However, he played only one more Test before being dropped for three years. Upon his return in 2010, he carved a more permanent place for himself as Pakistan opted for a twin-spin attack in Tests. He showed that he deserved a place too, reaching the 50-wicket mark in only his 11th Test. He played a vital role in Pakistan’s recent series win against Sri Lanka and England.
