He is the only cricketer to scoring a half century on debut at the age of 19.  Many, including former Pakistan captain Ramiz Raja and Wasim Akram, have lavished praise on his performance.  Earlier, Pakistan’s star bowler Shoaib Akhtar asked to play Haider Ali in the last match of the T20 series against England on his YouTube Channel.

Haider Ali Haider Ali has scored 239 runs at a strike rate of 156.28 for the Peshawar Zalmi in the Pakistan Super League. Ramiz Raja thinks that this cricketer has the same talent as Virat Kohli or Babar Azam.

But the funny thing is that neither Virat Kohli nor Babar Azam but Haider Ali’s favorite cricketer is Rohit Sharma.  He has said this in various interviews before.  He wants to play long innings like Rohit Sharma.  He also said that scoring 200 runs in ODI cricket is one of his biggest dreams.
