Quetta Gladiators pacer Mohammad Hasnain has become the hottest property in town after clocking 150 km/h on the speed gun in the ongoing Pakistan Super League (PSL). Astounding everyone with the sheer talent he possesses at the young age of just 18, Hasnain has landed a spot in Pakistan’s national squad for the upcoming ODI series versus Australia.
As the world comes to terms with Hasnain’s immense potential, it is worth noting that the youngster’s brilliance was promised four years ago by Australian legend Steve Waugh. In a story dictated by Hasnain’s previous coach, Waugh was smitten by Hasnain’s bowling and predicted great things for his future.
The former Pakistan U-15 coach Mohammad Masroor related: “We did well on the tour of Australia in 2015. Steve Waugh came to watch his son Austin at one of the matches & when he saw Shaheen Afridi & Mohammad Hasnain in action, he predicted both will make an impact at international level.”
