Congrats Hasnain.

Byline: Zaheer - Kech

I WOULD like to congratulate Mohammad Hasnain for his first and Pakistan's second hat-trick in T20 internationals. After Faheem Ashraf, he is the second bowler to do so in T20s.

According to a profile I read online: 'Arguably the fastest bowler in Pakistan right now, Mohammad Hasnain burst through the age groups to make his domestic debut in 2018. Apart from his ability to clock the high 150s (KPH), he can also swing the ball prodigiously and it's this deadly mix that saw him being fast-tracked in such a way that he surprisingly made Pakistan's World Cup squad in 2019, after having played in a few bilateral ODIs earlier. He didn't get to feature in any of the matches, but his inclusion in the squad was indicative of the selectors' faith in him.

'Hasnain is still a raw product and on his off-day, can travel the distance due to his immense pace. However, his ability to take the pitch out of the equation with pace makes him a valuable asset to have, especially on flat pitches. By picking him after the World Cup, the think tank have decided to invest fully in the talented pacer who was born in Hyderabad (Pakistan).

'Even before crossing teenage, he already has a PSL contract and a CPL contract to his name. The 2019-2020 season will be crucial for Hasnain as he looks to stamp his class on the biggest stage.'

I wish him the best of luck for the future.
