    Faheem Ashraf speaking on TV:

    "I am thankful to Islamabad United for making me a part of this team"

    "PSL is a big event so for an event like this, you need to be mentally prepared. You need to have the correct mindset to do well"

    "Mickey Arthur said I can be like Pakistan's Lance Klusener. He used to open the bowling then he also opened the batting so he said that similarly, he sees the same thing in me, that I can bowl and bat well and I can become like him for Pakistan"

    "Cricket has become difficult nowadays as you don't need to just bat and bowl, you need to put a lot of effort into fielding. If you look at Ben Stokes, he is a good fielder, not just a good batsman or bowler. He doesn't look like just a batsman or bowler, he's a main player in the team while on the field. I want to win matches with my performances for Islamabad United"

    "You shouldn't be scared of getting hit for a six, I don't know how often I have been hit for a six. But if you are scared about it then you will get hit, but if you don't focus on that then you can perform better"

    "My ideal (inspiration) is Ben Stokes"

    "When I started playing cricket in U19, I was an all-rounder. In the first year of U19 under Ehsan Adil so I made a fifty in a final. The next year, I was captain for Faisalabad and was the best batsman"

    "I have played for Faisalabad for four years and from there, everyone loves joking around and having fun. Similarly we have a group of guys including Fakhar, Hasan, Shadab, Shinwari and Nawaz and we're all of a similar age so we get along really well"

    "When I started in the Champions Trophy, my batting pleased everyone. On the last two tours against SL and NZ, my batting hasn't been so good but I bowled well. In PSL, I don't want to focus on any one thing, I want to do well in all three aspects of the game as Mickey Arthur and Azhar bhai tell us"

    "Every player's dream is to play Test cricket. The main cricket is Test cricket. I want to give my 100% for Pakistan and get into the Pakistan Test team, not just for 1-2 matches or series but I want to play Tests for Pakistan for a long time"

    "In the last two series, I have been working on my slower balls as I'm already accustomed to bowling at a good length etc., but in domestic cricket, we don't bowl slower balls that often. I am currently playing in the shorter formats where these deliveries can come in handy".

    Klusner or Razzaq, both could be good role models for Faheem and I would be glad if he can achieves 60% of what they did in the respective carriers.

    he sees potential in him. Fahim is still fresh and young

    hopefully he grows and improves to be the modern Klusner

    That's understandable - and may be he will get better with experience. But right now, neither his bowling or batting is offering any reliability.

    Klusener might get a gig at SuperSport.

    I doubt Faheem will even get invited for Game On Hai at PTV Sports.

    This should be a good reality check not only for him and also for Mickey too, who has invested heavily on him only to be dropped before WC.
