He also claimed three five-wicket hauls and played a massive role in Pakistan’s Champions Trophy win in England — making him a shoo-in for the emerging player gong.

Champions Trophy, Pakistan’s historical win of 2017 summer in which they defeated arch-rivals India in a thrilling final, was voted by fans as the Moment of the Year.
