Pace bowler Mohammad Ilyas has revealed that he is looking to play Test cricket for Pakistan in two to three years’ time after his superb performance in this year’s Pakistan Super League (PSL).
The 20-year-old was one of the young standouts in the tournament as he took nine wickets in eight matches for the Multan Sultans at an average of 21.55.
Ilyas also represented Sindh in their Pakistan Cup clash with Khyber Pakhtunkhwa on Tuesday, where he finished with figures of 3-66 off his 10 overs.
