Pakistan has given world cricket some of the finest talents, be it in the bowling department or batting. The likes of Imran Khan, Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis, Inzamam-ul-Haq, Saeed Anwar are some of the many top cricketers to have played for Pakistan. Now, a 7ft 6inches tall cricketer from Pakistan is making news, looking to break into the national team.
It isn't the first time that a player over 7 feet tall is getting attention in Pakistan cricket. Earlier, Mohammad Irfan (7ft. 1 inch) tall had also gotten plenty of attention as he made his ODI debut back in 2010. While it's been a topsy-turvy ride for Irfan since then as he continued going in and out of the team, he did intimidate many batsmen with his bowling because of the height.
Now, another name in the form of Mudassar Gujjar has come to fore, with the aspiring cricketer looking to play for the Lahore Qalandars and the Pakistan national team one day.
His pictures were shared by Pakistani journalist Saj Sadiq on social media on Thursday.
Mudassar had joined the Lahore Qalandars' development program last year with the hopes of developing his skills with the ball under the guidance of some renowned coaches and trainers.
Because of the height, Mudassar experiences some fitness issues but is working on them to make sure it does not hurt his career in the sport.
