'Former U19 hero' Anwar Ali ready to break into Pak Test side

Islamabad, Aug 5 (ANI): Young cricket player Anwar Ali who once helped Pakistan win the U19 World Cup title against India is ready to break into the national Test side and said that he has worked extra hard this season to turn himself into a new player.

According to The Dawn, Anwar expressed that it was every player's dream to become a Test cricketer, including his, but he also loved T20 with big crowds, sixes, fours and quick wickets.

Anwar was named man of the match for his 5-35 when Pakistan won the U19 tournament in a stunning come-from-behind win and in 2006, when the video of his wickets went viral on YouTube, the natural talent was there for all to see, the report said.

The player said that through his younger years, a lack of coaching benefited his action. (ANI)
