Finally, the PSL 2021 hero Dahani came to National Coaching Centre here to meet his new friend Baloch before he departs for participating in Imam Reza Cup, scheduled in Iran from May 29 to 30.

"I have come here to support Mueed as he is going to participate in Imam Reza Cup," Dahani told Geo Super. "I have heard a lot about Mueed and his achievements. I feel happy to be his friend and my best wishes and prayers are with him," he added. 

To a query about his challenge, Dahani said he is preparing for it because beating Mueed is tough. "Yes, I had accepted this challenge and I am preparing myself for it. I know its not easy to beat Baloch Bolt," the cricketer said while laughing. 

Meanwhile, Dahani also asked fellow cricketers to come forward and support athletes in other sports. "Other players should also come forward and support these players. They must be acknowledged for putting in a lot of hard work to serve Pakistan," he said. 

Upon being asked, Dahani also announced a special prize for Mueed. "I have a special prize for Mueed, I will disclose it once he comes back," he concluded.
