10-Year-Old Zidane From Pakistan is World’s Youngest Sports Commentator
Zidane listed his name in the record book when he was only nine years and 185 days old.
A 10-year-old boy named Zidane Hamid from Rawalpindi has become a Guinness World Record holder by being the world’s youngest sports commentator.
Zidane listed his name in the record book when he was only 9 years and 185 days old. He made his professional commentary debut on the 7th of July 2019 for FM 105.8 when he provided commentary for Real Kashmir vs. Kashmir Kings match in Rawalakot, Azad Kashmir. He was also present at the toss and interviewed players in between the overs.
The 10-year-old has been a fan of cricket, both playing and commentating, from a young age of three. He used to read reviews and journals of cricket stats. He even started his own YouTube channel to provide post-match reports and discussions of international matches.
One of his dreams was to watch old cricketers playing with new players so he could measure the speed of the former Australian bowler, Jeff Thomson, and West Indies bowling attack bowlers.
Zidane’s favorite sport is cricket, and his favorite teams are Pakistan, England, and the West Indies. Wasim Akram and Shoaib Akhtar influenced the youngster to become a commentator, whereas his favorite players are Sir Vivian Richards, Ben Stokes, Brian Lara, and Chris Gayle.
