Born in quaint little town of Muzaffarpur, Bihar, Shahbaz Nadeem was an early starter. The left-arm spinner broke into the U-14 Bihar side and went on to represent India in the Under 19s. Known for his courageous left-arm slow bowling, Nadeem is an agile fielder as well. He has had the opportunity to lead the Jharkhand side on a couple of occasions.
In the 2015-16 Ranji season, he was instrumental with the ball and bagged 51 wickets, becoming only the 6th bowler in the history to do so. To prove that it wasn't an one-off fluke, he repeated the performance in the next season, finishing as the highest wicket-taker with 56 scalps and that helped Jharkhand to make it to the semi-finals of Ranji Trophy.
IPL through the years
One of the most under-rated spinners in the domestic circuit, Shahbaz Nadeem has a knack of being consistent with his probing lines on and around off-stump. A regular in the Delhi Daredevils set-up since 2011 IPL, Nadeem had to fight reputations and rewards to claim a regular spot in the playing eleven. His tally of games played in IPL 2015, 2016 and 2017 were 4, 4 and 7 games respectively. Surprisingly, Delhi bid for him yet again in the 2018 auctions and the left-arm spinner ended up playing six games at an average of 37.00 with a healthy economy rate of 7.00. He was eventually bagged by Sunrisers Hyderabad ahead of the 2019 edition as a part of trading that saw Shikhar Dhawan move to Delhi at the expense of Vijay Shankar, Shahbaz Nadeem and Abhishek Sharma.
