Pakistan’s highly promising right-arm fast bowler, Zaman Khan, is brimming with excitement as he prepares for the forthcoming clash in the Super 4 Asia Cup against Sri Lanka. Being a part of such a prestigious event was a dream that had seemed out of reach until now.
Zaman’s inclusion in the Asia Cup squad came about due to unforeseen circumstances; he stepped in for Naseem Shah, who suffered a shoulder injury during a match against India. Another crucial bowler, Haris Rauf, was also sidelined due to injury, which raised concerns about Pakistan’s pace attack. To bolster their bowling options, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) made a prudent decision to call up Shahnawaz Dahani and the young Zaman Khan.
At just 22 years old, Zaman has rapidly ascended to prominence in Pakistan’s cricket scene, largely owing to his exceptional performances for Lahore Qalandars in this year’s Pakistan Super League (PSL).
Reflecting on his selection for the national team, Zaman conveyed his joy, saying, “I never imagined that I would be part of this squad. It is a tremendous honor for me to represent Pakistan in the Asia Cup.”
The young pace sensation, who recently made his T20 debut, eagerly anticipates reuniting with his teammates after a significant period apart.
