“Qasim Akram has the talent to represent not even domestic teams but [the] Pakistan team also,” Hasan, who is currently captaining Central Punjab in the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy, was quoted as saying by Khel Shel on Twitter.
Recently, Pakistan Under-19 head coach Ijaz Ahmed said that Qasim could be the next Mohammad Hafeez or Shoaib Malik.
In September, he also backed Qasim to break into the Pakistan team really soon as he has all the talent in the world.
