Pakistan left-arm wrist-spinner Faisal Akram said the legendary duo of Mushtaq Ahmed and Shahid Afridi taught him a lot during the time he spent with the Multan Sultans.

Faisal said Mushtaq is “my favourite coach because he is also a leg-spinner”, while Afridi has been providing him with plenty of tips and advice.

The 17-year-old was recently invited to Pakistan’s training camp ahead of the national team’s departure for their tour of South Africa and Zimbabwe, where he trapped captain Babar Azam lbw.

He was also the highest wicket-taker in the 2020/21 National U-19 One Day Cup as he took 27 wickets in 10 matches for Southern Punjab Under-19s at an average of 14.33.

“Mushtaq bhai is my favourite coach because he is also a leg-spinner, so I have learned a lot from him. Shahid bhai also gave me tips and confidence,” he told Cricket Pakistan.
