International Cricket Debut

Junaid zia joined the HBL camp held in November 1998. Junaid further said" that was the era of fast bowlers. Unfortunately none of the players from the camp could make it to the international level. I still remember there was a young talented fast bowler from Garrison Academy named Shahrukh who was yard faster then me". [3] training 

Junaid was recalled

He was recalled to the one-day squad for the home series against Zimbabwe in January 2008 after taking 46 wickets in ten Quaid-e-Azam Trophy matches. In just his second match, he finished with impressive figures of 3/21. Two more expensive outings later, Zia was discarded from the team all together. [4] recall  

Amir Sohail praised Junaid Zia
