Former Pakistan captain Ramiz Raja believes Australia batsman Ben Dunk deserves to become an honorary citizen of Pakistan.

Ramiz’s comments come after West Indies all-rounder Darren Sammy, who was recently named the Peshawar Zalmi’s head coach, will be bestowed with honorary citizenship and Pakistan’s highest civilian award – the Nishan-e-Haider – by President Arif Alvi on March 23.

Dunk is currently representing the Lahore Qalandars in the Pakistan Super League (PSL), and is the third-highest run-scorer in the tournament with 250 runs in five matches at an average of 83.33 and a strike-rate of 201.61.

Ramiz also joked that Dunk should play for Pakistan.

“I think we should give him [Ben Dunk] honorary citizenship as well,” Ramiz said in a YouTube video as quoted by Cricket Pakistan. “We should make him play for Pakistan because my wish is too see a Pakistani batsmen do similar kind of power-hitting. We haven’t seen any Pakistani batsman do this kind of hitting except for Shadab Khan this season.”

The Qalandars’ next match will be against the Peshawar Zalmi in Lahore on Tuesday.
