Four best Pakistani cricketers in Under 19 World Cup

Although the U-19 world cup did not end on a happy note for Pakistan, however the young passionate kids gave us moments of pride. If I take a look back at the way the young team handled the outclass teams of the world, I came across the names of some fabulous players. I have shortlisted the names of four players that must be admired for rendering high level of entertainment.

Sami Aslam:

Sami Aslam displayed consistency throughout the U19 World Cup and led his team from the front. His cool and calm method to tackle tough situations requires great applause. Hailing from Lahore, the captain made his 1st class debut in October 2012. Well done Aslam for providing great entertainment to cricket lovers back home. He scored 265 runs with an average of 43.

Imam ul Haq:

A cricket lover like his uncle Inzamam ul Haq, Imam batted brilliantly during the Under 19 world cup. He showered runs throughout the tournament and became the second highest run scorer. He scored 382 runs with an average of 63.6 making his team stand tall in the most difficult matches.

Zafar Gohar:

If you want to give points to Gohar over sensible cricketing approach, he would get 10/10. He was the man who along with Ammad Butt helped Pakistan beat the England cricket team to cruise to the semi-finals. He is a valiant player who can handle pressure and can make difficult things look easy.

Karamat Ali:

The leg spinner who inflicted great damage with his gugli spin gained much appreciation throughout the tournament. He took 13 wickets with an economy rate of 3.55 and his lethal bowling restricted the opponents to score minimum runs.
