- He spent three months here in the provincial capital at Shahid Afridi’s residence.
Pakistan’s legendary all-rounder Shahid Afridi has had a visit by Mir Murtaza, who hails from Indian Occupied Kashmir (IoK) cricketer.
Murtaza hails from the Anantang region in Kashmir and came to Pakistan through the Wagah Border and made his way to Karachi. He spent three months here in the provincial capital at Shahid Afridi’s residence.
During this tenure he received training along with tips from the former Pakistan captain.
Afridi praised the talented cricketer while claiming that he would love to help the youngster in the future as well.
“Mir Murtaza is a talented cricketer. I am available for any cricketer in the world. I would welcome anyone who wants to learn from me. If Mir Murtaza wants to learn more in the future, I would teach him everything I know. I could also help him get the best coaching he requires,” said Afridi while speaking to a local news channel.
“Mir Murtaza was the first Kashmiri to come from Occupied Kashmir and arrive at my house. He was a big fan. He is a very good boy. He has worked really hard. I hope he is successful in his passion,” he added.
Meanwhile, the Lahore Qalandars’ Director Cricket Atif Naeem Rana has also welcomed Mir Murtaza and claimed that, once the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic subsides, they will reach out to the Kashmir-based player to come and train at the Lahore High Performance center.
