Pakistan U-19‘s Mohammad Hasan Khan who is the captain of the side, was one of the brightest players during the last edition of Pakistan Super League (PSL). He represented Quetta Gladiators. Since he took up the sport, Hasan Khan has idolised Daniel Vettori, Ravindra Jadeja and Rangana Herath. In fact, Jadeja was also part of the U-19 World Cup when Virat Kohli had lifted the trophy. In an interview with ICC, Hasan Khan explains how T20 league has helped hone his skills and boosted his confidence before the U-19 tournament went underway.

The left-arm spinner and right-hand batsman is an all in one package for Pakistan. However, Pakistan faced a set back as Afghanistan thrashed them in the first match by 5 wickets in the first match of U-19 World Cup 2018. Yet, Hasan Khan was on top scalping two wickets for 45.
