Early careerEdit

Having played age group cricket for Hong Kong Under-19s in the 2010 Under-19 World Cup,[1] Aizaz made his World Cricket League debut for Hong Kong in the 2011 World Cricket League Division Three, where he helped Hong Kong earn promotion to that year's WCL Division Two. It was in this tournament that he made his List A debut, against Uganda.

He played four further List A matches in the competition, the last coming against Namibia.[2] In his five matches, Aizaz scored 71 runs at a batting average of 17.75, with a high score of 33.[3] He also took a single wicket in the competition, that of United Arab Emirates batsman Shaiman Anwar.[4]

At the 2012 ICC World Twenty20 Qualifier, played in the United Arab Emirates, Aizaz took ten wickets from eight matches, behind only Nizakat Khan (11 wickets) for Hong Kong.[5] These came at an average of 17.40, and included a man-of-the-match performance, 5/25, against the United States, who made 101 all out in response to Hong Kong's 177/4 in the tournament's 11th place play-off.[6]

International careerEdit

Hong Kong's performance at the 2014 World Cup Qualifier allowed them to regain the ODI status they had previously held. Hong Kong also qualified for the group stage of the 2014 ICC World Twenty20, and Aizaz made his Twenty20 International debut during the tournament, against Nepal.[7] He went on to make his One Day International debut for Hong Kong in November 2014, against Papua New Guinea in Australia.[8] On debut, he scored 42 runs batting eighth – his highest List A score.[9] Hong Kong toured Sri Lanka in the same month to play Nepal, and Aizaz was named the man of the match in the single Twenty20 International the two teams played, taking 2/4 from four overs (as well as two catches) and top-scoring with 21 runs in Hong Kong's two-wicket victory.[10]

In August 2018, he was named in Hong Kong's squad for the 2018 Asia Cup Qualifier tournament.[11] Hong Kong won the qualifier tournament, and he was then named in Hong Kong's squad for the 2018 Asia Cup.[12]

In December 2018, he was named as the captain of Hong Kong's team for the 2018 ACC Emerging Teams Asia Cup.[13] He was the leading wicket-taker for Hong Kong in the tournament, with five dimsissals in three matches.[14] In April 2019, he was named in Hong Kong's squad for the 2019 ICC World Cricket League Division Two tournament in Namibia.[15]
