Fiery speedster Haris Rauf has stormed into the national side on the back of stellar performances in the ongoing Big Bash League (BBL). The Melbourne Stars pacer became the first person from the BBL franchise to pick up a hat-trick and has followed it up with intimidating spells throughout the competition.
As a result of his remarkable rise in his nascent playing career, Rauf has vaulted to the highest level. Talking about his emotions after being named in the team, the right-arm paceman thanked the Lahore Qalandars management for giving him the initial platform to unleash his talent and hone his skills.
“I still remember the day when I came to participate in the Qalandars player development program and I was picked by Aaqib Javed. It was my dream and I am very excited to be named in Pakistan team today” - Rauf was quoted as saying in the video message.
