Pakistan batsman Sohaib Maqsood was highly impressed with how well all-rounder Iftikhar Ahmed performed in the recent National T20 Cup.

Iftikhar, who represented Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, finished as the second-highest run-scorer with 409 runs in 12 matches, which included three fifties, at an average of 102.25 and a strike-rate of 170.41.

He also claimed eight wickets at an average of 13.25 and an economy rate of 5.57.

“What a player Iftikhar Ahmed, congratulations on a wonderful tournament,” Maqsood said on Twitter.

Maqsood was supposed to represent Pakistan in the T20 World Cup, but he was ruled out of the tournament with a back injury and replaced by veteran all-rounder Shoaib Malik.

Iftikhar, meanwhile, was not picked.
