Pakistan couldn’t help appreciate it and were pleasantly surprised by the talent this kid possessed at such a tender age. It also caught the attention of Pakistan’s cricketing legend Wasim Akram who took to twitter saying, ‘’Where is this boy???’’ and also saying that the nation has great talent and with concentration, training and by providing them with opportunities, it can be nurtured into something great.

Akram posted the pictures of this special training on social media, making the cricket lovers inside Pakistan and across the globe really content.

He expressed that he was quite pleasantly shocked that the boy already knew the intricate details and was well-trained. He said that Hassan perfectly knew how to grip the ball for out-swing and in-swing. Wasim further appreciated his passion by saying that he was listening and learning with full concentration. He also suggested him to not only keep working hard for his passion but also finishing his education along the way when the time comes Hassan will be trained to play for Pakistan.
