A 15 year old is in Pakistan's squad for the twenty 20 world cup, having impressed in the under 19's.

I can't ever imagine that happening in England. Do you know anything more about this kid?

i saw him bowl, and yes he was good, but he is so young, and me being 16 myself, if i went and played in a tournament i'd be in awe of everything, so i dont see how they could pick someone so young

He's clearly good enough! Opened the batting aswell! Fielded slip, it wouldn't happen in England...

Wouldn't happen in England because our cricket isn't in crisis. Saying that, if it was, the selectors would probably look the other way for the people that are past it.

Good bowler seemed really mature for his age.. Think he scored a century in the recent U19 World Cup I think he opens or came 1 down..

Adam Ball, aged 16 at Kent just signed a professional contract. He played for the England U19s in New Zealand too. I don't think it would happen in England though, no matter how good the player.
