Mahinder Singh said that he would like to make a name for himself by playing in high-pressure matches. He added that he would like to emulate legendary fast-bowler, Waqar Younis, and go on to perform for Pakistan.

Mahinder’s name came into the limelight in 2016 when he was called up for a camp of emerging fast bowlers and batsmen by the National Cricket Academy. Since then, Mahinder has not been a part of the domestic circuit due to the change in structure.

He last played Grade II cricket in 2017 and has not been picked up by any of the regional teams in the current domestic structure.

As I had only played the occasional match for my department, at district level or Grade II cricket, I didn’t really stand a chance in the current domestic set up. A lot of the time I was given just the occasional end-of-season match to see what I could do.

Mahinder also said that he has encountered discrimination because of his religion, but he is not prepared to give up on his dreams because of that. He concluded that there are good and bad people everywhere.


  • The only way for him to break into the circuit of Pakistani cricket is to bowl really fast like 145-150 KPH. Also, if he can participate in the talent hunt program of Lahore Qalandars. From PSL, it’ll be easier for him to join Pakistani team, after show casing his talent, swing, and raw pace.

  • Wow, Very delighted to know about Mahinder Pal Singh. He is our Spoot (Son) of Punjab Pakistan. We love you bro! We wish you and pray that you represent Pakistan and make it winning all time.
