Early signs

He attended Parktown boys school in Johannesburg. He had his family in South Africa. Shamsi was the leading wicket taker of the team St Kitts and Nevis Patriots. Shamsi was named and selected in the 2019 superb World Cup team-, his first outward show in the mega event. Thanks to Tahir's presence, he found it difficult to contribute to the playing XI. Shamsi was picked for two round-robin encounters in the multi-nation journey, but the weaker not only remained wicket less but was in addition pricey.

ODI Career

He made his ODI debut in June 2016 against Australia in the overseas cricket form. In the same year, Shamsi got the chance to stand for the team in Test cricket too.He has played 22 matches till now, and has taken 26 wickets at an economy rate of 5.32.

Test career

Shamsi has played in 2 Test matches in his career since making his debut against Australia at Adelaide Oval on Nov 24, 2016. His economy rate is 3.45 and he has 6 wickets in his kitty.

IPL career

His big break came in franchise cricket at the start of his career, when RCB - Bangalore drafted him in as substitute for the injured Samuel Badree in IPL 2016, he was a good player in all sorts. Shamsi was the one and only who was presented in four matches all season and couldn't give a fair account of him, partly due to some pretty harsh conditions for bowlers.

T20 Career

He made his Twenty20 International debut for South Africa with his fast paced bowling that was against England on 21 June 2017. Virat Kohli became his first T20I wicket, which he took in his third T20I, which was a great achievement in his career beginning. In April 2019, he was named in South Africa's squad for the 2019 Cricket World Cup and he made his best performance in that match. The first few years didn't bring the impact which Shamsi must have desired. It was in 2013/14, when he finished as the third-highest wicket-taker in the cricket space with 47 wickets to his name, in the three-day Cup that he got noticed and claimed a more concrete position for the Titans.

ICC Trophies

Tabraiz is yet to prove his courage to pluck all the awards and accolades in the longer version of the game; however, he is a regular for South Africa in the shorter formats. He did quite a lot of net practice in order to provide with the best performance till date. It is quoted from an unknown source saying “After losing both Mason and Brad to injuries, Shamsi bolsters the squad and offers an excellent spin option with international experience for the final in the following match. We're looking forward to having him with us," said White when asked about the signing. He is the second most South African to participate in the international ham shire department to participate in the world cricket and still continues his good work in the making grabbing several eyeballs.
