A powerfully built seam bowler hailing from the North West Frontier.  ‘Rio’ was part of the U19 World Cup team in 2003 and progressed through the Academy and A team format to win a Test Cap.  Bowls at a bustling pace.  His prowess with the bat is akin to his namesake Shahid Afridi.  On song, Rio’s stay at the crease for 30 minutes  will destroy any league attack.  Four outstanding sessions in the North Yorks & South Durham for Great Ayton, saw Riaz amass 2000 league runs @ 30 and 339 wickets @ 15.  These efforts rewarded his side with a league title and several cup triumphs.  A cricketer who is capable of 100 wickets and 700 runs a season means Rio’s stock will always be high.  Level 2 qualified. 
Over 4 years with us he was exceptionally good as a pro. Took 100 wickets one season, a rare occurrence in our league. Had 3 9fers and not many weeks without a 5fer, bowls his heart out every week. Swashbuckling bat scored 100 his first appearance plus a couple more, hits the ball a country mile and only knows one way to bat hence it's a lot or nowt! .Always drew a large crowd.
His teammates loved him.  He never coached for us but we put him through a UKCC2 coaching course at Old Trafford. He was really good with our youngsters though, they all worshipped him. He would be a lot better now as he is more confident with his English.
We never retained him in 2010 due to the economical turn down and the club resources limits taking him out of our financial budget, he was a perfect pro in his attitude and performances.
