Halfway through the tournament, the Pakistan Super League (PSL) has unearthed a number of young talented cricketers.
The latest to join the list is Multan Sultans’ talented wicket-keeper opening batsman, Umar Siddiq.
Son of former Test umpire, Siddiq Khan, Umar has impressed a number of people with the short amount of opportunities that have been presented to him.
Thus far, Umar has scored 119 runs in three innings at an average of 39.66 and the youngster is eager for more success.
Speaking to a local media outlet following a win over Islamabad United, Umar said:
I won’t say that I’m satisfied with what I have done at this stage. This is just the beginning I want to continue doing this and finish among top performers of the league.
He said that PSL is the best chance for him to showcase his talent on a global stage and of course, audition for the national side.
I waited to have this chance for two years. Now I got the opportunity and luckily I’m in good form too. One performance in PSL can change your life and I’m looking forward to give many of such performances here.
He further added, “You rub shoulders with them throughout of the league which allows you to learn a lot from them, from their experiences and work ethics, this is a great learning platform as well.”
