FAISALABAD: A ten-year-old batting prodigy has impressed at the Lahore Qalandars’ trials at Faisalabad.
Ali Hasnain Badshah who hails from Okara fulfilled his dream of playing cricket, after Qalandars’ announced they will be taking the youngster under their wing.
Qalandars’ CEO Rana Javed said, “He is good and confident and we will take him under our umbrella and provide him with proper training.”
Speaking to Geo.tv, Qalandars’ director of cricket Rana Javed said, there is no reason why this young boy cannot be trained to play for Pakistan.
“It will be a big failure of the system if the boy is not playing cricket for Pakistan in the next six or seven years,” Javed said.
The 10-year-old was ecstatic with the support he had received from the Qalandars’.
“I am a huge fan of Hashim Amla and Brendon McCullum and want to be just like them,” Badshah said.
He added, “I came here to show what I have and I am happy that everyone appreciated me.”
“I want to play for Pakistan and I am hopeful that Lahore Qalandars’ will provide me with the track to achieve my next dream,” he added.
