Team :
Pace bowler of the team acts as a pacemaker when the hope of the team stops in winning the match takes wickets to put the team as a front runner to the victory. Very few fast bowlers were in the team that gave the Riaz a chance to get back into the team. When Umar Gul was injury prone there is no one to replace him except Riaz. But he filled the position very well. On his test debut he took 5 for 63, and become 9th bowler to take 5 wickets haul on debut and main victims of his wicket are Andrew Strauss, Trott, and Kevin. This never last long for him and his inconsistency made the selectors to leave him for the test squad against New Zealand and West Indies in 2011. His debut was so unforgettable which was against the rivalry India where he took another 5 wicket haul in world cup semis at Mohali. But on the other side he was leaking a lot of runs. His economy rate was so poor at the end of the series. He still manages to sneak wickets but he still have to concentrate on defensive bowling.
