LAHORE: Pakistan Super League was winded-up last night after a successful show at Gaddafi Stadium (Lahore).

What this edition has done for cricket Pakistan is still being discussed.   

Bringing the League home with foreign players and showcasing positive image of Pakistan were the best part of this season.

Moreover, Super League has continued to put forth new names that people believe would  build the future of cricket here.

While Hassan Ali and Babar Azam were the shining stars who emerged from 1st edition, this season too brought forth a bunch of up-coming talents.

The most amazing examples of this year’s players is a pair of 18 years old, Sahadab Khan and Hassan Khan.

One is a leg spinner (Hassan) and other is left-arm spinner (Shadab). Hassan Khan obeyed his duties for Quetta Gladiators; he picked many important wickets in the season.

Shadab Khan was playing for Islamabad United, his role was prominent both with ball and bat. His best knock was against Lahore Qalanders where he scored 42 runs off 23 balls. Both of them were picked from emerging categories.

Usama Mir, who belongs to Karachi Kings franchise, is another name in this list. The 21-year-old is a big turner of ball armed with impressive googly.

One more talent discovered is Fakhar Zaman of Lahore Qalanders, a left hander batsman. In all 8 league matches he scored a sum of 177 runs.

Irfan Khan Jr, Usman Shinwari and Rumman Raees were also among those who created impact with their performance and displayed enough ability to emerge at international level.
