Usually Talent Spotter looks at the young up and coming, but 35 year old Rashid Latif of Rawalpindi has been gaining such interest from PakPassion members that it was imperative that we tracked him down.

I quote Rashid "Well I havent really had a chance to play many games for Rawalpindi, as they have had bowlers like Akhtar Ayub, Yasir Ali and Yasir Arafat in their squad. I've been playing a lot of club cricket and Grade 2 cricket.

However now that the Quaid E Azam trophy is incorporating regional teams and departmental teams means that I finally got my chance for Rawalpindi, as a lot of the Pindi boys are playing for KRL.

I own my own cricket club in Rawalpindi called Basit Gymkhana, where I am trying to give young players some exposure and hopefully some of the boys will get a chance to eventually play some first class cricket.

I'm a Level 1 qualified coach and am hoping to do my Level 2 soon. I'd like to play for a couple more years and then take up coaching full time.
