Pakistan rising star Haider Ali believes that up-and-coming all-rounder Qasim Akram is absolutely “fantastic”.
The 17-year-old is currently playing for Central Punjab in the National T20 Cup and has scored 30 runs at an average of 10 and taken one wicket at an average of 100.
However, Haider is the not the only person backing Qasim for greatness as Pakistan Under-19 coach Ijaz Ahmed also believes that the talented youngster has a bright future ahead of him and will break into the Pakistan team really soon.
