“I gave today’s match ball to a security guy who is from India. When I came to the ground today I told him I am from Pakistan, he got emotional, he cried and he hugged me,” Rauf was quoted as saying by Saj Sadiq on Twitter.

His five-for comes after he starred in his BBL debut against the Brisbane Heat, where he took figures of 2-20 off his four overs, which included a wicket off his very first ball.
