Junaid Khan is a local hero at the moment. Very soon he could become a national hero. A front line new ball option who has all the ingredients to trouble top order players IF he plays. An excellent decision by the selectors. It was a creative and brave move. Traditionally Pakistan have discovered gems at high profile events that have provided a “surprise package” with their fresh presence and burning desires.
*In 28 FC appearances Mohammad Aamir took 120 wickets
*In 35 FC appearances Junaid Khan has taken 167 wickets
-Statistically and technically they are very similar.
-I have hope that Junaid will become a special name!
-I won't at all be surprised if he emerges so brilliantly and bursts on the scene just like Aamir did in 2009!
-The whole of Pakistan is behind this sensational left arm pacer. The world is waiting and there is no better place to make a name for yourself than in a World Cup! We wish JK every success............
