He further says: “At that time my family was going out somewhere. I went to my mother and asked her to wait for a while as my name was announced for the Test squad as I was informed by my friend. At my request, my mother stayed with me, and when my name appeared in the last, I can’t tell you about my feelings. My mother and brother went into prostration and thanked Allah for this. Now, I’m hopeful to get a chance in the 16-members squad,” he added.
