GREEN TEAM EXCLUSIVE
Bazid Khan, a notable name among Cricket commentators, started his cricket journey when he played U19 from Islamabad and later on, a respected person, Shreyar Khan, featured Bazid in Beaconhouse Schooling System’s tournaments which made a way of life for Bazid as he later got a chance to play U-15 matches at a young age of 20 in England for Brighton College at Lord’s. Later on, the player went on to play for the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC).
The former Pakistani cricketer was in an interview with Green Team, where he revived several memories and has a say on different matters regarding Pakistan Cricket.
He has been a part of the Pakistan Super League’s commentary panel since the initiations. On being asked about PSL is a significant asset for the revival of cricket in Pakistan, Bazid said,
“UAE has not got the fan following of cricket as similar to that of Pakistan. The home of PSL is Pakistan, and the game needs to be organized here. Pakistan is a cricket-loving nation, and the game isn’t finished even after both the innings get done. The talks remain continued for hours, even after the match is finished. “
“The revival of International cricket in Pakistan was necessary because people could see the players and foreign stars playing on their homeland as there is a huge difference in watching cricket at home and watching a match live from the stadium.”
The commentator, who kicked off his domestic career playing for PIA with fellows like Imran Tahir, has idolized Viv Richards of West Indies and thinks the veteran can still play.
