Sohail Khan appeared from the depths of anonymity in the KPK Province to be one of the fast bowling stars in Pakistan’s domestic circuit. Sohail points out that his pace to the strength that he achieved is by throwing stones and swimming in rivers on the mountainous region of KPK

Rashid Latif trained Sohail Khan for an year and made him bowl all day. He also urged Sohail to work on his fitness on a consistent basis. After putting in all the hard work, he was selected to play for Sui Southern Gas Corporation (SSGC) in 2007-08. He had a fantastic start in the Quaid-e-Azam trophy, picking up 10 wickets in his debut match against Pakistan Customs.
Sohail Khan snapped up 16/189 in the match, breaking Fazal Mahmood’s 51 year old record for the best match haul by a Pakistani bowler in domestic cricket, which was 15/76 for Punjab against Pakistan Combined Services in 1955/56. He picked up 7/80 in the first innings and 9/109 in the second innings as the match ended in a draw.

Sohail Khan ended up being the highest wicket-taker in the competition that year, with 65 wickets at an average of 18.43, including eight five wicket hauls and two ten wicket hauls. Sohail Khan also played for Sind in the RBS Pentangular Cup in the same season, picking up 23 wickets in four matches, including two consecutive five wicket hauls. Sohail is yet to play for Pakistan since the Zimbabwe tour, he applies his trade for Port Qasim Authority in the domestic circuit.

Sohail Khan had a fabulous 2013-14 domestic season. In his last 6 first class matches, he managed to pick up 40 wickets, including five 5-wicket hauls. He also did well in List A games, scalping 10 wickets in 4 outings. These sort of performances gained him a place in the 15-man squad for the 2015 World Cup.
