Pakistan’s Former Great Abdul Qadir’s Son Selected in Australian PM’s XI
Yet another Pakistan player moved to another country due to the politics in the homeland. The former great Abdul Qadir’s son, Usman Qadir has moved to Australia to continue his cricketing career. It seems like he is on the right track with the selectors showing faith on him at the high level.
Usman Qadir moved to Australia in 2016:
Usman Qadir moved to Australia in 2016 and played grade cricket for Sydney. Further, he also had an earlier stint in the Adelaide club competition. As per the records, Usman Qadir was born in Lahore.
The youngster also played for Pakistan in domestic cricket. He featured for Pakistan in six games and tallied a mammoth 36 wickets in Sydney. Perhaps, it made the Australians give the ticket for Usman Qadir.
As per the rules, Usman Qadir is currently not eligible to play for the Australian national team. He should be waiting till ICC T20I World Cup 2020, to complete the term and find a place in the Australian national team.
Coming to the current schedule, Usman Qadir will take the field for Australia Prime Minister’s XI against the South African side, who are touring to play the limited-overs format in November.
South Africa had already announced their squad and are on their way to reach Australia. They will be locking horns against Prime Minister’s XI at Manuka Oval on October 31st.
Australia would like to take the revenge:
The last series between Australia and South Africa will be registered in the record books for obvious reasons. Cameron Bancroft, David Warner and Steven Smith returned with the bans while the team received an embarrassing loss.
However, this would be the perfect chance for them to take the revenge and bag the limited-over series. They will be locking horns for three times each in ODI and T20I formats of the game.
