He had Pakistan's highest ERA in the tournament.

In the 2017 World Baseball Classic Qualifiers, he pitched one game. He relieved Asrar Ahmad in the 5th against Great Britain, two on, one out and a 7-0 deficit. He allowed five hits, three walks and five runs (four earned) in 2 2/3 IP (both inherited runners also scored) to end the game, which finished early due to the mercy rule. This time, he was 3rd on Pakistan's staff in ERA (they used five hurlers in the event).
