Days after plight of Pakistan limited format captain Babar Azam’s Under -16 level coach got highlighted in media, Pakistan Super League side Lahore Qalandar’s have come forward to help Rana Sadiq.

Rana Sadiq due to the economic stress following COVID-19 pandemic has been forced to sell fruit in Lahore.

“It made us sad to see a cricket coach vending fruits on streets so we have decided to reunite Rana Sadiq with his real profession,” Qalandars Director and Head Coach Aqib Javed told Geo News.

“Rana Sadiq said that he has coached Babar Azam, Agha Salman and Faizan Raja at [lower] age groups so we have also decided to acquire his services for the same age groups. He will be given a chance at the High Performance Centre.”

Meanwhile, Lahore Qalandars CEO Atif Rana said that his franchise not only aims to unearth new talent but also wants to take care of those connected with the game.

“It is for that purpose that we decided to approach Rana Sadiq,” he said.
