Haris Rauf has been in such a scintillating form that everything he touches turns to gold. He has become the talk of the town. Playing in his first Big bash season, Rauf is knocking hard on the national team’s door and a hat-trick on Wednesday have done his chances world of good.
His figures of 3 for 23 against Sydney Thunder, where he claimed a hat-trick is a succession of good performances and that has made everyone associated with Pakistan proud of him, none more so than his PSL Franchise, Lahore Qalandars.
“It’s a dream come true moment for us, credit goes to Aaqib Javed who worked hard on him and most importantly showed confidence on him and today Haris has become a star,” Sameen Rana, the CEO of Lahore Qalandar’s.
Haris was a street cricketer playing tape ball cricket and had zero experience of hard ball. However, as we say fortune favour the brave, and Haris was brave enough to test his luck. He was selected in Lahore Qalandar’s Player Development Program and since then he has never looked back.
“Credit to Haris for utilizing the opportunity well,” Sameen added. The CEO of Lahore Qalandars was full of praise for Haris after he listened to Head Coach Aaqib Javed’s advice and refrained from doing an indecent celebration.
“People had advised Rauf to change the style as it possibly didn’t go well with many, he did so and proved that he’s also a humble person who is willing to learn at every step,” Sameen stated.
The success story of Haris Rauf has given Lahore Qalandars a platform to build on their already well-established player development program and continue producing such gems. They are focused on making Pakistan a powerhouse in cricket.
“We are committed to make Pakistan ‘a superpower in cricket’ through its Player Development Program (PDP) which aims to bring hidden talent to the limelight,” said the management of Lahore Qalandars on Wednesday.
