Zaib made his List A debut against Leicestershire in the Royal London One-Day Cup in 2015. Three more Championship matches fell his way in 2016 including five wickets in a marathon stint against Leicestershire.
Ahead of the 2015 season he shone for England’s Under 17s against Pakistan U17s in Dubai, scoring three successive half-centuries. He was schooled at RGS Wycombe, where his innings of 230 became a school record.
Zaib has been a constant performer in the Second XI and his performances with both bat and ball have earned him spots in the first team throughout his time at Wantage Road.
