Middle-order batsman is looking forward to contributing in the team’s success in future matches
Pakistan had given Scotland a cricket lesson on Sunday when they raced to the 76-run target inside 12 overs for the loss of three wickets, to register their first win in the ongoing International Cricket Council (ICC) Under19 Cricket World Cup 2020.
In run-chase, highly-rated Rohail Nazir and Irfan Khan got some batting practice when they scored 27 and 38 not out, though openers Hadier Ali and Mohammad Shahzad’s failures will be a bit of bother for the Pakistan team management.

Middle-order batsman Mohammad Haris didn’t get a chance to show his mettle on Sunday but looks forward to contributing in the team’s success in future matches.
“Jos Buttler is my favourite player and I want to play like him in the middle-order,” said Haris. “I was into cricket from a young age. I first started playing when I was nine. My professional cricket journey began at 15 in Peshawar when I started playing club cricket.”
“I feel really lucky that I got full support from my mother. I used to anxiously wait for Sunday as we used to play a match every Sunday, sometimes for the entire day,” he added.
Pakistan will now take on Zimbabwe at the Witrand Oval, Potchefstroom on Wednesday.
