Hasan Mohsin is amongst the brightest prospects the U19 World Cup has unearthed. Hasan Mohsin has displayed outstanding all-round performances with the bat and ball, ending up as the highest scorer and the leading wicket-taker for Pakistan.
The opening pacer who was trusted with the new ball by the captain, was oddly enough a leg spinner until last year. Although the extraordinary transition could have ended up as a failed experiment, Hasan Mohsin has flourished in his new role as a seamer and thinks like one as well.
Hasan Mohsin ended up as the joint highest wicket-taker for Pakistan with 10 wickets at a low economy rate. What instantly catches the eye of any spectator is the contradiction between his aggression and his lean figure which presents him as weak option.
Hasan Mohsin, however, shined with bat as he also ended up as the highest run-scorer for Pakistan with 254 runs in five matches including a blistering century against Nepal. Hasan Mohsin has come onto the scene with a bang and he could not have hoped for a better timing. With Muhammad Nawaz possibly breaking into the national side, Pakistan A will be requiring a solid all-rounder to replace him and Hasan Mohsin seems to be a suitable alternative.
Pakistan has produced undeniably outstanding talent in abundance over the past few years at the U19 level. Some of the current first-team players including vice-captain Sarfraz Ahmed, Anwar Ali and Babar Azam are products of the very same tournament. While cricket at this level is primarily dominated by talent, in order to progress and succeed in the increasingly competitive sport, the board must ensure this raw talent should be groomed and provided with necessary exposure through platforms such as the Pakistan Super League.
