Hasnain has excelled in the ongoing Pakistan Super League (PSL), where he has snapped up seven wickets in five games at an average of 21.85.

Explaining why he looked up to Waqar, Hasnain told the PSL’s website: “I grew up with an aim to become a fast bowler and Waqar was my role model.”
Hasnain is also thrilled that he is on the verge of accomplishing his dream of playing international cricket for Pakistan.
