RAWALPINDI: Pakistan team pacer Haris Rauf was highly praised by one of the greatest Pakistani cricketers, Imran Khan.
Khan, 1992 World Cup-winning captain, engaged with kids in a small village here named Adiala after his helicopter made an emergency landing at Dera Ismail Khan while en route to Bani Gala.
During the conversation, Khan inquired kids about their favorite cricketers. “Shaheen Afridi, Shahnawaz Dahani,” kids took names of their favorite players.
Meanwhile, Khan praised Haris for his express fast bowling. “Haris Rauf is an excellent bowler,” said Khan.
Moreover, when Khan asked them about Rizwan, a guy from the crowd complained about his slow batting approach. “Rizwan plays a lot of dot balls. He scores fifty of 45 balls,” he said.
Former prime minister and PTI chief Imran Khan’s helicopter suffered technical issues which forced the pilot to make an emergency landing. Therefore, Khan spent time with the children of the nearby village who were playing cricket in the fields while waiting for his car.
