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 teen age sensation as well this spell still gives us goosebumps….❤️❤️❤️❤️
