Multan based young pace bowler Rahat Ali has impressed the PCB selectors with his impressive performances in last season’s Quaid-e- Azam Trophy and Pentangular Cup that compelled national selectors to name in the Pakistan team for 5-match ODI series against Sri Lanka. The one day series in Sri Lanka commences after the conclusion of two T20Is, at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium on 7th June.
Rahat’s consistent performances were the key to his selection as the Pakistani think tank look for a pace bowler who can provide the team with wickets at the crucial times as well as provide aggression in the 50 over format.
Rahat took 17 wickets at an average of just over 23 in four Pentangular Cup matches. His performances in the Quaid Trophy were equally impressive as he took 44 wickets in 9 matches at an excellent average of 17.45. However he only featured in one National One Day Cup match for KRL where he took 1 for 29 in eight overs against Peshawar.
