Pakistan batsman Sohaib Maqsood has lavished praise on fast bowling all-rounder Anwar Ali, saying he was a “teenage sensation”.

Maqsood’s comments came when he was reminiscing about Anwar’s devastating spell against India in the Under-19 World Cup final in 2006.

Anwar finished with figures of 5-35 off nine overs as Pakistan defend a meagre total of 109 in incredible fashion as India were bowled out for 71.

“Annu this was our teenage sensation [and] this spell still gives us goosebumps,” Maqsood said on Twitter.

In the Pakistan Super League (PSL), Anwar featured in one match for the Quetta Gladiators, in which he went wicketless.

As for Maqsood he represented the Multan Sultans in five games and scored 135 runs, which included a top score of 61 not out, at an average of 45 and a strike-rate of 139.17.

PSL 6 was postponed indefinitely last Thursday due to the coronavirus (COVID-19).
