When he made his international debut in an Ashes Test at the SCG, his home ground, in 2011, the top-order batter became Australia’s first Muslim and first player of Pakistani origin.

Khawaja has frequently discussed the difficulties he has encountered in his pursuit to play top-level cricket in Australia.

“It’s a lot better now,” Khawaja was cited by ESPNCricinfo as saying.

“I see a lot more cricketers from the subcontinent coming up through the state levels in Australia, something we didn’t see when I was growing up, even while I was playing.”

“I was playing domestic cricket, and I was the lone player from the subcontinent.” “Right now, it’s probably just myself and a few people.”
