Shoaib Akhtar, the world’s fastest bowler of his time, has been drafted in as a mentor by Lahore Qalandars for the upcoming season of Pakistan Super League. “I’m honored and privileged to be a part of Qalandars,” Akhtar said of his appointment with the franchise on Friday (October 6).
Shoaib remarked that he was ‘extremely thrilled and excited,’ and added “Haris is from Pindi and he is the find of Aaqib Javed. Aaqib knows a talent when he sees one.”
Rauf will now be part of the Qalandars’ development squad that will travel to Australia to play against the Big Bash League (BBL) franchises Hobart Hurricanes, Sydney Thunder and Sydney Sixers.
