With the presence of Adil Rashid in the side, Azeem Rafiq found it difficult to break through in the playing XI consistently but once the White Rose decided to play two spinners in limited-overs, Rafiq became a consistent member in the starting eleven. He had a fabulous 2012 season where he helped Yorkshire to reach the final of the domestic Twenty20 for the first time and the national selectors rewarded him by picking him for the England Performance Programme squad to tour India. Rafiq was also elected in the Yorkshire squad to partner Adil Rashid in the Champions League T20, 2012.
