In a setback for the Trinbago Knight Riders, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) have recalled pacer Mohammad Hasnain from the ongoing 2019 Caribbean Premier League with immediate effect.
The 19-year-old pacer has appeared in all four CPL 2019 clashes so far for the Knight Riders and has claimed a total of six wickets after earlier obtaining a No Objection Certificate (NOC) from the PCB to play the entire tournament.
However, the Pakistan board has had a late change of heart with the young pacer being recalled to participate in the revamped Quaid-e-Azam first-class tournament which got underway on Saturday.
The teenage pacer broke into prominence at the start of the year with his maiden Pakistan Super League (PSL) stint for Quetta Gladiators. Having picked up 12 wickets in the campaign, Hasnain was handed his ODI debut against Australia in the UAE before being picked in the Pakistan squad for the 2019 ICC World Cup.

The youngster failed to make a single appearance in Pakistan’s World Cup campaign in England but he has been touted for a big international future with the raw pace he has displayed so far in his career.
The teenager clocked the fastest delivery of the ongoing CPL 2019 in Trinbago’s clash with Jamaica Tallawahs with a speed of 155 kph.
With senior pacers such as Mohammad Amir and Wahab Riaz walking away from red-ball cricket in recent times, Hasnain could add some depth to Pakistan’s pace battery ahead of their crucial tour of Australia towards the end of the year.
