Hanan Khan, Parathay wala becomes cricketer

Pakistan is indeed a land of true talent. Every now and then we see some ordinary people living ordinary lives come forward and mesmerize us all with their talents. Halal Khan is one of those people. He works in a hotel and has tremendous talent in batting.

He regularly plays cricket after winding up his job. He now has been selected by the Quetta Gladiators in their under 23 side. Halal was pretty happy about his induction in the side. He said that he wants to play for Pakistan at the international level.

Hanan is basically from Qila Abdullah a remote district near the city of Chaman. He works in a local hotel in Karachi. He is a Parathay wala and after finishing his work he goes straight into the ground. Sometimes he even changes in the hotel and then goes to play cricket. Hanan is a left handed batsman and he gave a few trials going on courtesy to PCB. He was seen batting by even Inzamam Ul Haq. Now the Pakistani chief selector was impressed with Hanan. He has encouraged him to move forward.

In his interview Hanan said that it is his dream to play for Pakistan. The PSL franchise Quetta Gladiators were pretty quick to spot his talent. They have inducted this batsman in their under 23 team. Hanan gets a platform here to exhibit his talent. Quetta Gladiators are definitely moving in the right direction. The franchise already announced that they will target the talent from Baluchistan. Now Hanan does come from the same province despite working in Karachi. So this is a job greatly done by the Quetta Franchise.

Players like Hanan deserve a chance at the international level. They need mentors who can groom them for international cricket. Pakistan has potential in cricket and players like Hanan have proved it again and again. All they need is a chance.

Pakistan cricket team needs to look beyond the Shahzads and Akmals and a few more. There is talent in this land. It is the job of the PCB to hunt down this talent. The PSL franchises are doing all this. They are running around, holding camps and making sure that if a kid has some cricketing talent then they get him. Lahore Qalandars started this first and they have inducted some really good young players. In both batting and bowling departments, these kids have proven their worth. We have seen then bowling and batting and there is no doubt that they are good in their job.
