The Pakistan U19 cricket team has been on a roll as it has won the last two away tours quite comprehensively by producing dominant performances in all departments against sides like Sri Lanka and South Africa.
Opening batsman Haider Ali is one to look out for the future as he has shown great temperament and skill at the top of the order, providing a solid foundation in all games. Haider seems to be a technically sound batsman whose game relies heavily on stroke play and use of wrists which makes him a handy top-order batsman.
U19 captain, 17-year-old, Rohail Nazir is another player who might be seen in the senior team very soon as he has all the ingredients of a top-class modern wicket-keeper batsman. Nazir usually plays in the middle order where he solidifies the innings with his active maneuvering of the ball through the gaps, a skill needed at the senior level.
Moreover, young pace Naseem Shah is another player who might be close to a national call up as the team is currently looking for pace bowlers who could touch the 150 km/hr barrier on a consistent basis.
All these youngsters have great potential to become world-class players and the PCB must ensure that they are groomed under the right people and are given enough opportunities to settle in the system.
