Qadri relishing busy 12 months
About to set off for India with England Under 19s, young spinner Hamidullah Qadri is relishing the challenge of balancing his cricket development alongside A-Levels.
With a level head and a desire to perform well both on the field and in the classroom, the 17-year-old is far from overwrought by the prospect of playing cricket in the final year of his studies – instead he wants to enjoy the experience and get the most out of it.
He said: “I’m in the final year of my A-Levels, but I’m obviously delighted to go with the Under 19s to India. It’s a good opportunity for me to develop my game and obviously it’s challenging, but that’s what life is about and you have to make the most of it and enjoy it.”
