Born in Pakistan, Sikandar Raza did not make his way to the top level of cricket in a typical fashion. Originally, the talented batsman held hopes of becoming a fighter pilot, and had applied to join the air force before a failed eye test ended his dream. Raza then attended Glasgow Caledonian College, where he began playing semi-professional cricket, before moving to Zimbabwe to join his family who had emigrated there several years earlier. He made his first-class debut in 2007 and once qualified to play for his adopted country, Raza played his first one-day international for Zimbabwe against Bangladesh in May 2013. In more than 20 matches since Raza has scored two centuries, including a high score of 141, and become an important part of Zimbabwe’s ODI line-up. In his four Test match appearances to date, Raza has scored four fifties.
Before becoming a professional cricketer, he hoped to be a fighter pilot.
