Arish Ali Khan gears up for the Under-19 World Cup


Left-arm orthodox spinner Arish Ali Khan thinks that the Pakistan Under-19 cricket team is strong enough and perform well in the upcoming ICC Under-19 World Cup in South Africa.

While talking to media at the National Cricket Academy (NCA), he said that the mega event is very crucial and performances will be good regardless of the team they face.

“Tournament is very important, no matter who the team is we will try to perform well in the competition,”

He had the opportunity to work under the mentorship of former leg-spinner Mushtaq Ahmed, who has worked hard on his bowling.

“U-19 is the first platform to be consider at the higher level, examples of Mohammad Hasnain and Mohammad Musa are there who came through this level in the senior side,” Arish said on the importance of Under-19 cricket.

Young spinner is quite impressed with all-rounder Mohammad Nawaz and Sri Lankan legend Rangana Herath.

“I am very fascinated by these two spinners and their style impresses me a lot,” He added.

He concluded that he will try to do well in the upcoming Pakistan Super League (PSL) as he will be representing Quetta Gladiators.
