Pakistan pacer Mohammad Hasnain has been summoned back home from the ongoing Caribbean Premier League (CPL 2019). Hasnain, the 19-year-old, who grabbed eyeballs this year for hitting speeds of 150 kph after he was picked by Quetta Gladiators, had sought a No-Objection Certificate (NOC) from the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to head to the West Indies.

Reportedly, Hasnain could play the entire tournament for Trinbago Knight Riders but it has now been revoked by the PCB with the aim of bringing the 19-year old back to play the Quaid-e-Azam trophy.

He had played only two first-class games but ended up with 12 wickets in 28 overs with an economy rate of 7.50. His performance earned him a maiden call-up to the Pakistan one-day team in March and a World Cup spot in July.

Hasnain was part of Kieron Pollard’s Knight Riders side, who are off to a good start in the tournament. He took the crucial wickets of Chris Gayle and Chadwick Walton in TKR’s win against Tallawahs.
