Former Pakistani cricketer and well-known commentator Ramiz Raza that the young lad has immense talent and has made a name for himself in his first season of PSL.

However, Ramiz Raja also offered an honest piece of advice for Haider Ali. Ramiz told him to follow the approach of Babar Azam and Virat Kohli.

‘‘Haider needs to follow the approach of Babar Azam and Virat Kohli. These two don’t improvise much as they have so much talent and rely mainly on conventional shots. Haider has a similar talent as Babar and Kohli, but just needs to work on his game awareness and play longer innings,’’ Ramiz Raja had said in a video posted on his Youtube channel.

However, young Haider Ali wants to follow Rohit Sharma. In a video chat with Pakistan cricket, Haider said that Rohit Sharma is his idol and he wishes to have a strike rate like him.

“My idol is Rohit Sharma. The best thing about him is his strike rate and I want that in my game,” said the 19-year-old Haider Ali in a video with Cricket Pakistan.
