Pakistan cricket greats have picked their favorite teams in the National T20 Cup, which is due to start from September 30 in Multan.
Former national team opener Imran Nazir along with Moin Khan, Ramiz Raja, Rashid Latif, Saeed Ajmal, and Pakistan’s leading run-scorer in Tests Younis Khan have expressed their excitement ahead of the much-anticipated event.
Ramiz Raja Is Supporting Northern
“I feel the Northern side will again be a strong side, and it will be difficult to beat them because their captain Imad Wasim is good. They have Shadab Khan, as vice-captain who is progressing very well in the white-ball cricket but I will have my eye on Haider Ali. He is becoming my favorite player because of his fearless batting,” said Ramiz
Rashid Latif is Supporting Northern
“Northern have Mohammad Wasim as coach, Imad Wasim as captain while they also have Mohammad Amir. Haider Ali is very exciting. Khyber Pakhtunkhwa have Abdul Razzaq as the new coach, they have Mohammad Rizwan as captain. Junaid Khan, Mohammad Hafeez, Wahab Riaz, Shoaib Malik which makes them a richly experienced side.
I am hoping to see some young players make their name while spinners like Shadab Khan can regain form along with Mohammad Nawaz and Mohammad Asghar. Kashif Bhatti would appear for Balochistan. I really see this is a quality event and we all should support the tournament and make it a success.” said Rashid Latif.
Younis Khan is Supporting Balochistan
“I am supporting Balochistan cricket team. This team consists of senior and young exciting players, and I hope under Yasir Shah and star player Bismillah Khan; the team will give very good performances. My best wishes are with the team in the tournament.” said Younis.
Saeed Ajmal is Supporting Northern
“I am backing Northern as they have a very exciting side. In Imad, Shadab Khan and Mohammad Amir they have rich experience and quality. They also have some experienced players both in their batting and bowling departments who understand well the demands of T20 cricket.
What makes them a formidable unit is the presence of promising youngsters like Haider Ali and Rohail Nazir who have both progressed remarkably well in the last year.” said Ajmal.
Imran Nazir is Supporting KPK
“National T20 Cup is taking place and I am supporting Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. The side has Mohammad Hafeez, Shoaib Malik, Mohammad Rizwan and Fakhar Zaman. The team will be coached by our legend Abdul Razzaq. I hope the way Razzaq used to perform for the team, he will take out the same performance from his team players. My best wishes are with the team.” said Imran.
