An Attock-born Pakistan’s young batsman becomes fear for bowlers


Hailed from Attock, Pakistan’s young batting sensation Haider Ali is transforming into a solid contestant at the crease with every passing day.

After a match-winning 119 runs knock against Oman on the other day in ACC Emerging Team Asia Cup in Bangladesh, Haider described his struggle and hard work in a video released by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).

“I started my cricket at club level and then played for Rawalpindi U16 region. I also played my U19 from Rawalpindi and the journey continues and I am here on top with Pakistan’s emerging team,” the 19-years-old cricketer said.

The emerging cricketer describes his performance against South Africa and Sri Lanka earlier this year. The right-handed batsman scored 214 runs at an average of 53.50 against Sri Lanka while gave a tough time to South African bowlers at their backyard by scoring 317 runs which include a century knock. Pakistan outclassed South Africa 7-0 in the One-Day series.

The opening batsman is preparing for the World Cup and Asia Cup next year. “I am looking forward to making an impact in this remaining time and make my place in next year’s U19 World Cup,” he concluded.
