KARACHI: Islamabad United's emerging batter Hassan Nawaz is excited to face Mohammad Amir in Pakistan Super League (PSL) season 8. 

Hassan, who came to limelight in Kashmir Premier League (KPL) season 2, said he wishes to do well against his favourite bowler Amir. 

"Amir is my favourite bowler and I follow him a lot. Our first match is also against Karachi Kings so if I get a chance, I am really excited to face him," said Layyah-born Hassan. 

While representing Mirpur Royals in KPL 2, Hassan remained second-highest scorer with 241 runs in six matches at an average of 40.16. 

The young batter is also looking forward to learning from his United teammate Sohaib Maqsood. Sohaib, who played for Multan Sultans previously, will represent two-time PSL champions this year. 

Moreover, Hassan also talked about friendly team environment under the captaincy of Shadab. 

"Shaddy Bhai always tell us to enjoy. He says performance doesn't matter, you need to enjoy your time at fullest," he shared. 

"I don't feel like it's my first season. It feels like I am a part of this team for last couple of years," he added. 

Hassan eyes a spot in Pakistan team through PSL like many other players did before. "I played in KPL and my performance was highlighted there. From KPL, I am here in PSL. Inshallah from PSL, I will be able to get into Pakistan team," the youngster shared his goals. 

In the end, Hassan gave a message to PSL fans. "Come to the stadium, support our team as we have won PSL title twice. Your support will help us become champions again," he concluded.
