First Class Cricket: I made my first class debut against Multan in Hyderabad. 

Experience at Recent NCA Fast Track Spinners Camp: It was a great experience and I learned a lot from Tauseef Ahmed and Abdul Qadir. They taught me a lot about spin, such as how to use the crease. They figured out some issues with my run-up as I was running in too quick. It was very helpful.

Biggest Supporters: My biggest supporters have been Pervaiz Chandio and Pir Muazzam-ul-Haq Shahnawaz. They have backed me from the start and they are the reason I have come this far. Pir Muazzam-ul-Haq was the District Association President, when I first came. Pervaiz Chandio is the club president, and they have supported me a lot over the years.
