    Pakistan newbie all-rounder Faheem Ashraf is living a dream these days. With a hat-trick to his credit and a number of match winning performances, Ashraf’s young career is moving on the right trajectory.

    The all-rounder is currently playing at the National T20 Cup, where he is representing the Faisalabad side. “It’s a high-profile tournament and it’s a tournament that is very important to the players for national selection and also due to the fact that there are more Pakistan Super League places up for grabs,” said Ashraf, quoted PakPassion.net.

    The all-rounder, however, was disappointed with the local fans over their lack of attendance at the National T20 Cup.


    “It’s very sad that the [strength of] crowd is so poor. The earlier matches each day see hardly any fans and then the later matches see small crowds.” Ashraf urged the fans to attend the tournament in order to show their support for cricket.

    “Players want to play in front of decent crowds and I would urge the fans to attend the matches and back the players and all the teams taking part in this tournament. They need to do this to show the world that Pakistan supports all types of cricket, international and domestic,” he added.

    well a few reasons:

    - Random team names - Should have stuck with old teams like Stallions, Dolphins etc with whom fans had a genuine connection

    - Draft system - Players not representing home regions and having totally new teams drafted eveyr year kills any reason to support a team. Karachi team may well be named after any random city. Atleast with psl, ipl etc player retention means eventually fans form a connection with players and teams
