Pakistan’s Mohammad Irfan with a height of 7 feet 1 inch is currently the known tallest cricketer in the world. But, it seems like he has a competition waiting for him in his own country.
Pakistan Super League team Lahore Qalandars has roped in a certain Muhammad Mudassar who stands 7 feet 4 inches high. The 21-year-old off-spinner joined the Qalandar’s player development program and will be training at their high-performance centre for one year.
Hailing from Lahore, Mudassar joined the Lahore Qalandars’ players development program on November 6 and will be honing his bowling skills for the next year.
Speaking about his height, Mudassar said he intends to represent Pakistan after playing in the PSL. The spinner said that he finds picking up shoes the most difficult part of his daily routine, and hopes fitness issues due to his height won’t affect his career.
Irfan, the tallest international cricketer, was snapped up by Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in IPL 2011, and has become a mainstay in the Pakistan side.
