    Salam Shahid Bhai,
    You are a great assesst to our country. We throughly enjoy your cricketing styles specially your powerful n thrilling sixes. With the talent that you have been blessed with you should aim to hit six sixes in an over. I think that is a record you should have amongst all players as sixes come so easily off your bat. Praying for your success n Pakistani team’s success. Ameen.
