LAHORE, October 23, 2019 ( – The Director Academies Pakistan Cricket Board and veteran cricketer Mudassar Nazar has hinted some exceptional talent in the U-16 players of Pakistan team.

While talking exclusively to SNN247 today at PCB headquarter Lahore, Mudassar said that we have some exceptional talent in the U-16 players where we have some very good pace bowlers, spinners and batsmen. We have the best talent in U-16 compare to U-19 and others.

Pakistan U-16 cricket team will host Bangladesh U-16 team. While commenting on the selection of Pakistan cricket team for Australia tour, he said; “Misbah has selected best available talent especially fast bowlers. Some senior players already opted out of test cricket and some players are injured. This is the best available talent which will represent Pakistan in Australia.

The new system will take its time to prove its worth. I believe this is one of best system that we can implement in our domestic structure. We are now witnessing some very good competitive cricket in domestic circuit. No where in the world it is possible that any new system will show results from day one. We have to give it a at least three to four years to prove its worth.”

On question regarding Karachi fast bowler Tabish Khan, he said; “it is unfortunate that he is left out of the team. I have heard a lot about him. But we have limited slots available in the national team. Misbah has late start to his international career due to presence of players like Muhammad Yousuf and Inzimam ul Haq. When Wasim Bari was a wicket keeper, we had some very good wicket keepers waiting for their term like Taslim Arif etc. This is part of life and I hope Tabish will get his opportunity soon.”
