PositionAll Rounder

Major Teams: Crescent Hawks, Crescent Stars

Left hand Batsman.
Right Arm spin Bowler.

I started playing at the age of about 2 to 3 years old and competitive at the age of 6 in U.A.E.

My favorite shots are the Straight drive and the Leg glance.

The bowler I found most challenging in Winnipeg is Faraz.

The batsman I found most challenging to bowl against in Winnipeg is Zeeshan Siddiqui. He possess great temperament and an immaculate technique. Though the quality that makes him outclass the other batsmen in Winnipeg is his hard work to maintain a high standard of fitness. Jatinder (Sunny) Matharu too would be worthy mention in this category.

The most memorable moment/game I played in Winnipeg is the t20 match against Winnipeg Warriors where I was part of a record opening partnership of 241 runs with Muhammad Farooq where both of us got to our maiden Centuries. It was really special as runs had dried up in the previous 3 games and I had a point to prove to myself that I had the goods to deliver.

As a captain of World XI, I would have these five international bowlers in my team: Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis, Imran Khan, Shane Warne and Saeed Ajmal.
As a captain of World XI, I would have Saeed Anwar, Kumar Sangakara, Rahul Dravid, Damien Martyn and AB develliers as my five batsmen.

I predict that the team Crescent Hawks will win the league in my division in this season as we are on top with plenty of matches left unlike other teams.

I predict that Shahzada Khurram will score most runs in my league in this season. He’s been really consistent and intelligent with the way he’s batted so far.
At last I would like to Thank MCA for such a wonderful opportunity to not only play the game I love but also playing here has also helped me make a lot of friends in a very short term. Special thanks to Khurram Dar, Abdul Aziz, Daniyal Sajid and Zeeshan Siddiqui for guiding me and having faith in me.
