Pakistan's express fast bowler Haris Rauf has been made the goodwill ambassador of SDGs Parliamentary Task Force.
Haris graced the National Assembly session today and was welcomed by Deputy Speaker Zahid Akram Durrani.
"I am pleased today to announce him as the goodwill ambassador of SDGs Parliamentary Task Force," Durrani said during the session.
After the session, Haris was welcomed by Durrani and Convener SDGs Parliamentary Task Force Romina Khurshid as the goodwill ambassador. He was presented with the shield on the occasion.
Earlier this year, Haris was given honourary DSP rank by Islamabad police.
Haris, who used to play tape ball cricket in Rawalpindi, rose to fame after he was picked up in open trials held by two-time Pakistan Super League (PSL) champions Lahore Qalandars.
Qalandars invested in Haris and sent him to Australia under their player development program. Haris featured in Big Bash League (BBL) before making his T20I debut for Pakistan in 2020.
Over the period of time, Haris became the identity of Qalandars and also led Pakistan's bowling unit alongside Shaheen Shah Afridi. Currently, he is the main bowler in Pakistan team.
Haris alongside Shaheen also played an important role in Qalandars' back-to-back PSL title victories.
Qalandars, who suffered in PSL initially, bounced back in the tournament to bag back-to-back titles during the last two years. Under the captaincy of Shaheen, Qalandars won PSL seven and eight at their home ground. On both occasions, Qalandars beat Multan Sultans in the final.
