Pakistan have turned to youth as they attempt to win the Hong Kong Sixes for a record fifth time. Selectors have chosen a team packed with rising talent for the November 8-9 tournament at Kowloon Cricket Club. Test star Faisal Iqbal - nephew of the great Javed Miandad - will lead the young squad. 'We view the Hong Kong Cricket Sixes as the perfect environment in which to blood our up-and-coming talent,' said Zakir Khan, director of cricket operations for the Pakistan Cricket Board. 'The tournament is fast and exciting and a lot of fun for everyone involved, but it is also extremely competitive and puts a lot of pressure on players to perform, so it is a good learning experience for our youngsters. 'Therefore, we have chosen a young squad of promising players who we hope will go on to enjoy successful careers for Pakistan.' The Pakistan selectors have high hopes for 20-year-old fast bowler Mohammad Talha, who already has best figures of five for 57 in his short first-class career. All-rounder Anwar Ali, also 20, has best figures of six for 54 in domestic cricket and has represented Pakistan in Twenty20. Leading the way will be Iqbal, a comparative veteran aged 26 with 21 tests and 18 one-day internationals to his name. The highlight of Iqbal's test career is a masterful 139 versus India in Karachi in 2006. 'Of course, it is important for the team to contain some experience as well, which is why we have appointed Faisal Iqbal as captain,' said Khan. 'We know Pakistan have an outstanding record at the Sixes, so we trust this team to play well.'
