پاکستان کو نیا سٹار مل گیا!چائے والے کے بیٹے نے آسٹریلیا کے خلاف پہلے میچ میں ہی دھوم مچا دی

They say if you work hard to achieve something in your life then there will come a day when you will grasp that dream of yours. This has happened to Zaid Alam as well. Zaid is a Pakistani under 19 cricketer. He is a batsman and he is playing really well for under 19 team. Zaid Alam is son of a tea seller. He was selected on merit in the Pakistan team and this is something very encouraging for the Pakistan cricket. Earlier there was a concept that without nepotism and money you cannot get a place in the Pakistan cricket team but that is changed now. Zaid Alam played a really good knock of 35 runs in his first game. Pakistan team is currently in Australia where the young kid made his debut and his 35 runs innings looked really sound. He was playing the ball on merit and hit some really good strong shots on both side of the wicket.

Coming from a humble background Zaid had that pressure on him to perform. He knew straight away that he might not get too many chances and hence he has to make sure that he converts his chances to something. He did that in the opening game. He looked confident against the Australian bowlers. The wicket as expected had a lot of bounce. The ball was seaming as well so the conditions were not that much assisting for the batsmen and if you are an Asian batsman then you know what you are facing. Asian teams have always struggled against the Australians in Australia. The reason is the pitches. The bounce and then the seam movement there is in an extensive amount. Zaid composed himself and his determination was looking in his eyes.

He flicked one off the pads and grabbed his first boundary. The ball was full and straight and Zaid easily managed this one towards the vast gaps on the leg side. The moment the ball hit the bat it was evident that the fielders will not be able to stop the runs here. The next hit was a cut shot on the off side. This too was a brilliant shot again. The ball was a bit short and this time Zaid played a perfect cut shot. The ball was once again timed really well and once again the fielders just saw the ball going pass them towards the boundary ropes. The next hit was a straight drive. This was one of the best we have seen so far on this tour. Another length ball and Zaid just showed the full face of the blade and the ball met the middle and went straight back at the bowler. It missed everything and went straight towards the fence for a four.
