LAHORE – The young left-handed batsmen Haris Sohail needs Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and selectors help for inclusion in team after proving his credentials for the last two years in Quaid Trophy and currently underway G-1 President Trophy.

Haris has been a prolific run-getter in first-class cricket over the last couple of years and has started the current season in sublime fashion. .He slammed three successive centuries (115 not out, 117 not out and 120) in the ongoing Grade-I President’s Trophy in the six innings that he played so  far.

The 23-year-old left-handed batsman Haris Sohail, hails from Sialkot, made his first-class debut in 2007 at the age of 18 and represented Zarai Taraqiati Bank Ltd, in 2010-11 Quaid Trophy. He amassed 653 runs in 11 matches at an average of 54.4 with one century and five 50s. Sohail maintained his good form in the following season (2011-12) as well in the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy with 873 runs in 11 matches with four centuries and same number of 50s. During the same season, Haris was also one of the leading run scorers in the Pentangular Cup where he represented Punjab and smashed 311 runs in five matches at an average of 44.4 with one century and one fifty.

Sohail was a part of Pakistan’s Twenty20 squad for the tour of Sri Lanka earlier this year but returned back home without getting an opportunity to prove his credentials at the ultimate stage of the game.  The middle-order batsman looked in peak form during the Champions League T20 2012, in South Africa  scoring a match-winning half-century against Hampshire while representing Sialkot Stallions.

Haris Sohail is looking in great shape at the moment and has a very good technique, which is a rarity in Pakistani batsmen.  He plays very close to his body and is a very good on-side player. Cricket circles were of the views that Haris has a big chance of making his way to international cricket and they also hoped that the left-hander will be able to win the faith of the selection committee, headed by Iqbal Qasim, due to his superb performances in the domestic circuit.
