Pakistan Super League team Multan Sultans player Arafat Minhas has said that I know how important this league is for young cricketers, I will try my best to take advantage of it.
Talking to Geo News, 18-year-old Arafat Minhas said that he wants to prove himself as a good all-rounder by performing well in the PSL and make a place in the Pakistan squad.
He said that PSL has lifted many young cricketers from the floor to the throne in the past and he is sure that they too can accelerate their journey during this league.
Arafat Minhas has been a part of the Pakistan U-19 team but feels that the PSL is a tougher platform and now has his sights set on playing for Pakistan.
He said that the next 2 years are very important for him, in these 2 years he will work hard because this hard work will determine his future paths.
Expressing his happiness to be a part of Multan Sultans in PSL, Arafat Minhas said that he is very happy to play the league and excited for the action, will try to win the team with good performance and team’s success. Build up the force.
He said that it is a great opportunity to share the dressing room with players like Tim David, David Miller and Riley Russo, they are the best hitters in the world, I will try to learn the art of power hitting from them.
He further said that he wishes to learn how to finish the match from David Miller because Miller is the best finisher in the world and the finisher is very important in today’s cricket.
Arafat Minhas said that he has reached here by playing cricket in different age groups. He has been playing cricket since he was 10 years old. His father wanted him to become a cricketer. Used to go and now I am fulfilling their hobby.
It should be remembered that since its inception, Pakistan Super League has proved to be a platform for young cricketers, where they pave their way for selection in the national team by performing.
Shadab Khan, Mohammad Nawaz, Hasan Ali, Fakhar Zaman, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Shahnawaz Dhani are such players who have reached the Pakistan team only because of their performance in PSL.
This year too, there are many young cricketers in each team who have focused on making a place in the Pakistan team by performing in the PSL.
It should be noted that the eighth edition of Pakistan Super League will start from February 13, Multan Sultans will face defending champions Lahore Qalandars at Multan Cricket Stadium in the opening match.
