Since his debut in 1996 Mohmand has played as an opening batsman for several first-class teams in Pakistan. He made his first century in 1999-2000 when he scored 213 out of a team total of 395 to help Redco Pakistan Limited to an innings victory over Faisalabad. In 2009-10, opening the batting for Water and Power Development Authority, he made 302 not out against Sui Southern Gas Company, adding 580 for the second wicket with Aamer Sajjad. It is the highest second-wicket partnership, and the second-highest partnership of all, in first-class cricket history.
In 2009 he was invited to play for Afghanistan to strengthen their batting by their coach Kabir Khan, and was included in the 15-member Afghanistan team named ahead of the 2009 ICC World Cup Qualifiers in South Africa. However, Afghanistan withdrew Rafatullah from their squad after deciding he was not eligible to play for them.
In 2012-13 he was the highest scorer in the President's Cup One-Day Tournament, with 425 runs in six matches for Water and Power Development Authority, including three centuries.
