“I’m very happy that I can come back to the Melbourne Stars this season and play at the MCG again,” Rauf was quoted saying in the press release. “It was an unbelievable journey last season and changed my life in so many ways. The Stars fans were very supportive of me and I can’t wait to play in front of them again. The support of all the Pakistan community in Melbourne was fantastic and hopefully we can put in some big performances this season.”

The Rawalpindi-born pacer is expected to arrive in early January and will play till the start of February
