The 17-year-old chinaman has been an impressive performer at the junior level. He was the highest wicket-taker in PCB’s U-16 Pentangular tournament during 2018-19 season. He then also picked 27 wickets in only 10 matches during 2020/21 National U-19 One Day Cup.
Despite his impressive performances at the U-16 and U-19 level, he came to the spotlight, when he got Babar Azam out in a practice match at Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore. Faisal Akram will be representing Karachi Kings during the PSL 7.
The 19-year-old is having some good times with bat. Qasim Akram averages above 50 in List A cricket. In the Pakistan Cup 2021, he smashed a hundred against Central Punjab. He will be representing the Karachi Kings during PSL.
Known as the Pakistani ‘Malinga’, Zaman Khan impressed everyone during the Kashmir Premier League (KPL) as he took 8 wickets in his first three matches. He finished the tournament with 10 wickets in 6 matches. He will be representing the Lahore Qalandars.
The 20-year-old is another fast bowler to keep an eye on. He previously represented the Karachi Kings during PSL and this year, it will be the Multan Sultans colours he will be donning. Afridi can trouble the batsman with his pace and bounce.
The promising young cricketer from Bajaur will be representing the Peshawar Zalmi in the upcoming edition of Pakistan Super League. Although, not much is known about him but his bowling videos available on the internet tell a lot about him.
Abdul Wahid Bangalzai
Not many cricketers have come from Balochistan but Abdul Wahid is an evidence of the great talent Pakistan’s largest province has. The 18 year old scored his maiden double-century in the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy against Central Punjab last year. He will be representing the Quetta Gladiators in PSL.
