Profile

Offspinner Azeem Rafiq, who moved to England from Pakistan in 2001, played for England Under-15 and Under-17 sides, the latter as captain, as well as rising through the age groups at Yorkshire. However, the most significant honours came his way during the 2012 when he was named Yorkshire captain in the Friends Life t20, the first cricketer of Asian origin to take the role, and led Yorkshire to five wins from his six matches at the helm, handing over to Andrew Gale when the regular captain returned from injury with the side firmly on course to qualify for the quarter-finals. Gale was quick to praise the captaincy skills of his understudy, remarking that he admired his up-and-at-'em style and that he found himself on the same wavelength nine times out of ten.
