Pakistan cricket has been notorious for throwing its young lot in at the deepest end without much consideration—field them when raw and fresh being its motto.
This list of youngest Test cricketers includes 33 Pakistani cricketers with Hasan Raza holding the record for being the youngest ever to take the field in a Test match. The ODI list has a fair share of Pakistanis as well.
There are honourable awards handed out to Hanif Mohammad, Aaqib Javed, Imran Nazir, Majid Khan, Saqlain Mushtaq, Shoaib Malik and even Imran Farhat, but here we list the five who really made an impact on Pakistan cricket right from their teens and ended up becoming superstars before cutting the cake on their 20th birthday.
Disclaimer: With Pakistan cricket, you’re never really sure about exact ages. The above mentioned and those who made the cut are chosen based on the official age mentioned, which might not be the same as their real age.
