Balochistan head coach Faisal Iqbal has told everyone to watch out for 18-year-old fast bowler Akhtar Shah.
This comes after Akhtar was called up from Balochistan’s Second XI team to the First XI squad in the National T20 Cup.
In the one match he played, which was against Northern, he took figures of 1-40 off three bowlers.
With Akhtar dismissing Haider Ali in the match, Faisal believes big things await the teenager in his future.
