The Pakistani team for the upcoming ODI World Cup relies heavily on Haris Rauf. In the past, his sheer speed has tormented hitters, and he will be looking to do the same to help his team win the prestigious tournament in India. Rauf’s life was not a fairytale from the beginning, despite the fact that he is currently Pakistan’s first-choice player.
The 29-year-old, recalling his early struggles, has shared that he had to labour in the market on Sundays and sell snacks to pay for his college tuition because his parents weren’t able to afford it. The bowler afterwards switched to tape-ball cricket, where he used to make between $2 and $2.5 lakhs every month. Consequently, many His financial issues were resolved, and he used that money to assist his parents as well.
It was not an easy step from tape-ball cricket to the international level, but Rauf’s unwavering work ethic made it feasible. After making his debut in 2020, he quickly established himself as a major player in the world of cricket. Prior to being forced to withdraw from the recently finished Asia Cup due to discomfort in his right flank, the cricketer was highly helpful during the competition. He is, however, fully fit for the ODI World Cup and intends to support his squad in capturing a second world championship.
