Fakhar Zaman

Owner & CEO

Born in Kallang, KPK, Fakhar Zaman relocated to Karachi and enlisted in the navy at 16. He turned his focus to cricket after a year-long rendezvous and has been successful at maintaining that ever since. He made his first-class debut for Karachi Blues in 2013.

His strategies fit the limited-overs game. He is a left-handed batsman and a useful part-time slow left-arm. He had a great run in the 2016 Pakistan Cup, scoring 297 runs in five games, including two fifty-run innings and a century. His team, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, won the championship thanks to his stroke-filled 115 in the championship match.

He earned a permanent berth in the Lahore Qalandar lineup for the PSL 2 season, thanks to his strong performances in nearly every domestic competition. In more condensed forms of the game, his “see the ball, hit the ball” philosophy makes him a crowd favorite and a formidable package. His fireworks helped Pakistan qualify for the Champions Trophy finale in 2017. And he seized the chance, winning Man of the Match award after smashing a scintillating ton in the championship match against India besides making the national team win the title as well. With 252 runs in 4 games, Fakhar Zaman became the face of Pakistani cricket, becoming the newest team to win the Champions Trophy.

Fakhar Zaman is the CEO of the Fakhar Zaman Academy and has worked in the sports industry for over a decade. He has a passion for mentoring and developing the careers of young athletes, and his extensive sports knowledge adds insight to all aspects of the future of all FZA athletes. With outstanding credentials and accreditation from the AFL, FIBA, and ACA, Fakhar Zaman is well-positioned to offer FZA academics a strategic vision and assistance inside and outside the sporting world.
