Ramiz praised the boy for his technique and asked him to work on his constancy. Haider’s style was similar to that of Babar Azam and Virat Kohli, who also scored high without fail, he explained.
“He has to be consistent,” said Ramiz in a video on his YouTube channel. “His ideal position is No. 3 because he has the ability to play big shots. He doesn’t have to improvise – he has so many good shots and his power base is so strong.
“His template should be Virat Kohli or Babar Azam – these players have amazing numbers, although they don’t improvise too much because they have such strong skills and conventional strokes that they can be consistent and match-winners.”
Haider’s challenge was to reach more fifties and support themselves to convert them into higher scores, he added.
The commentator also liked what he saw from Zeeshan Ashraf, the left opener for Multan Sultans. “His hit rate of 133.07 is good for a start,” he said. “There is a fine line between a pinch-hit and an opener, and I think he ticks both boxes … He has a talent and a bright future.”
