Pakistan’s new young sensation Haider Ali reveals his batting idol
In recent times, most of the young cricketers’ idols are India’s Virat Kohli or Rohit Sharma. The reason is their domination in batting. These two are one of the best batsmen in the world.
Rohit Sharma’s name is followed by three double centuries in ODI cricket. Not only that, he also scored the highest innings of 264 runs.
So, Rohit can be considered an idol by the current generation of young cricketers. Pakistan’s new batting star Haider Ali is no exception. His batting idol is none other than his rivalry country, India’s Rohit Sharma.
Cricket relations between India and Pakistan have not existed for many years. The two countries also have a politically hostile relationship. Especially on the Kashmir issue, a war breaks out between the two countries. It is surprising that someone from Pakistan considers an Indian as a role model.
Haider Ali, a 19-year-old batsman, has been included in Pakistan’s squad for the tour of England. He said, “As far as role models are concerned, mine is Rohit Sharma. I really like him as a player, and want to give the side an aggressive start at the top, and hit the ball cleanly like him.”
Praising Rohit Sharma further, Haider said, “He is a man for all three formats, and he can adapt his game to all three formats. And the thing I like best is when he crosses 50, he moves on to a 100, and then he’s thinking of 150, and even 200. That’s what I want to do: to think about getting big scores, and when I get there, aim for even bigger ones. He finishes the game off for his side, and is a real match-winner.”
