Domestic and T20 franchise careerEdit

In October 2017, during the 2017–18 Quaid-e-Azam Trophy match between United Bank Limited and Lahore Whites, he took nine wickets for 25 runs in the second innings of the game.[4] These were the second-best figures in first-class cricket in Pakistan.[5]

On 3 June 2018, he was selected to play for the Toronto Nationals in the players' draft for the inaugural edition of the Global T20 Canada tournament.[6][7] In March 2019, he was named in Federal Areas' squad for the 2019 Pakistan Cup.[8][9]

International careerEdit

He was selected in Pakistan's squad for the 2016 ICC World Twenty20 tournament, but was dropped due to a knee injury.[10] He made his Twenty20 International (T20I) debut for Pakistan against the West Indies on 27 September 2016.[11]

Raees was initially not named in Pakistan's squad for the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy, but was added to the team as a replacement for the injured Wahab Riaz.[12] He made his One Day International (ODI) debut in the semi-final against England on 14 June replacing the injured Mohammad Amir. He took two wickets for 44 runs including England's opener Alex Hales.[13]
