Young Pakistani fast bowler, Mahinder Pal Singh, dreams of representing Pakistan against arch-rivals India and become the first person from the Sikh community to represent the Green Shirts at the highest level.
Mahinder Singh said that he would like to make a name for himself by playing in high-pressure matches. He added that he would like to emulate legendary fast-bowler, Waqar Younis, and go on to perform for Pakistan.
Mahinder’s name came into the limelight in 2016 when he was called up for a camp of emerging fast bowlers and batsmen by the National Cricket Academy. Since then, Mahinder has not been a part of the domestic circuit due to the change in structure.
He last played Grade II cricket in 2017 and has not been picked up by any of the regional teams in the current domestic structure.
Mahinder also said that he has encountered discrimination because of his religion, but he is not prepared to give up on his dreams because of that. He concluded that there are good and bad people everywhere. ( Pro Pakistan )
