Usman Khawaja Complete Bio & Career

Khawaja became the first Muslim to play for Australia when he debuted in the 5th and final Ashes Test at Sydney in 2011 as a replacement for the injured Ricky Ponting. His first steps in international cricket were pretty modest by any means. He scored 37 and 21 in that match, but his poise, technique and temperament were hailed as signs of becoming one of the future stars for Australia. 
Khawaja represented Australia in the 2006 U-19 World Cup where be batted as an opener. A left-handed batsman, Khawaja forced his way into the New South Wales team with consecutive double centuries for the NSW Second XI - a feat never before achieved by an NSW player. 
He made a big splash in the 2009-10 scoring 698 runs for the season and followed it up with another good show in the next season. He became just the first Pakistan-born player to represent Australia and the seventh foreign-born cricketer to do so in the last 80 years. Khawaja signed a county contract with Derbyshire to represent them in the 2011 season but left mid-way after being called up for the 'A' tour to Zimbabwe. After being in and out of the team for quite a while, he silenced all his critics after Australia's tour of India just before the World Cup. He scored two centuries in that series and has cemented his place for the 2019 World Cup team.
He plays for the Sydney Thunder in the Big Bash League since 2011. He was called in as a replacement for Kevin Pietersen in the IPL team Rising Pune Supergiant in 2016 and will be playing for them in 2017 as well.
