Profile

Adeel Raja has had an erratic career with the Netherlands national team. A prodigious spinner of the ball with excellent control, his career hit the buffers when he was banned for two years, one suspended, after failing a random drugs test in 2007. He is another who has come through the Dutch age groups and toured England with the Under-17 side in 1997.
