Former Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq said England spinner Rehan Ahmed caught his attention seven years ago.
He recalled meeting Rehan in England at that time and knew that he was a special talent as he was outclassing his peers with his googlies.
His comments come after the 18-year-old was included in England’s squad for the three-Test series against Pakistan, which begins on December 1.
