It is no secret that the streets of Pakistan are filled with a number of talented cricketers who wait for an opportunity. One such star emerged in the form of Haris Rauf who was picked in the Player Development Program (PDP) of Lahore Qalandars – a platform which saw the 26-year old cricketer making his mark in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) and then in the Big Bash League (BBL).
Reviewing the journey and prowess of Haris Rauf, former Pakistan cricketer Ramiz Raja came forward with a unique idea. He said that the tennis ball cricket encompasses a plethora of talent and it needs to be harnessed for Pakistan to get a sustained supply of capable cricketers.
For this reason, the cricketer turned commentator added that tennis ball bowling needs to be officially included in the curriculum of cricket academies. The 57-year old believes that it will help Pakistan to experience an influx of talented cricketers. It remains to be seen how the relevant authorities responds to this suggestion of Ramiz Raja.
