Imran Khan junior eager to make his mark in international cricket

LAHORE: Imran Khan junior, third of this name in International cricket is ready for Pakistan call up, he told crikcet.com.au in an interview.

He said  “There is no better feeling than playing for your country. I want to play for Pakistan.”

In the final of 20 Cup, Imran bowled four dot balls to Pakistan T20 captain Shahid Afridi before conceding a single on the fifth ball.

When asked about the event, he said:  “I wanted to bowl at least one over to Afridi. I wanted to test my variations against him.”

“He is the most powerful hitter in the world, therefore I wanted to see if I could survive against his powerful hitting. It was a great feeling.”

If Imran does make his international debut in Zimbabwe, expect to see a different style of bowler to notable southpaws produced by Pakistan.

Newly-selected, Swat born cricketer, has also said that his selection in national team has boosted his confidence.

Talking to newsmen outside Pakistan Cricket Board office, Khan vowed to perform well during Zimbabwe series.
