Left-handed batsman Sami Aslam was considered a prominent prospect for Pakistan’s test team but over the last year we haven’t heard much about him.
The 24-year-old youngster’s last test match was in 2017 against Sri Lanka, and since then he had never been selected for the team.
The Lahore born player has never shied from expressing his opinions, but this expression of opinions costed him his place in Southern Punjab team in the Quaid-E-Azam trophy.

Later he was drafted in a slightly weaker team, Baluchistan, where he never found his form again. Aslam had always shared his disappointment with fans when he tweeted that he is in disbelieve that he isn’t selected in the 35 men squad for the New Zealand tour. He further said that he deserved a place in the England tour as well.
Sources report that Sami Aslam has told his team that he will take no further part in the Quaid-E-Azam trophy and it is rumored that he will be moving to USA to play in a newly forming league and that he is already close to signing a good money contract.
Northern head coach Mohammad Wasim has voiced about this matter before when there were rumors about this news and told the players to be professionals and not quitters.
It is rather sad to see another promising talent departing from Pakistan and especially Sami Aslam who was tipped to be the next Saeed Anwar of Pakistan by many pundits and commentators.
