Pakistan Under-19s tied in the final of the Asia cup against arch rivals India. Pakistan, like all other games, had performed admirably with the bat but this time the bowlers had come against a super talent in Unmukt Chand. Though with Zia-ul-Haq returning and not in full flow, Ehsan Adil delivered when it mattered most. Here is a insight to some of the players playing for Pakistan, and their chances of playing for Pakistan.
Babar Azam: Babar is the captain of the side and a promising talent. An opening batsman with a pure technique, Babar has been tipped by many to represent Pakistan for a long time. Cousin to the Akmal's, Babar is about to represent Pakistan in his second World Cup and remains one of the favourites to lift the coveted youth trophy.
Prediction: Will play for Pakistan for a long time.
Sami Aslam: Sami was a unique talent and when KheloPakistan became the first media outlet to interview him we knew he had a good head on young shoulders. Still only 16, Sami has the ability to match any Pakistani player in history. A left handed opener, first came to recognition in a Tri-Nations tournament in South Africa. His 465 runs at 115 in the Asia Cup, which included two centuries (both against India) only emphasised the talent that pakistan have on their hands.
Prediction: Sami is still 16 and its hard to evaluate, but if he keeps working hard he will become a Pakistani great.
