As per the international ranking of junior players released by World Squash Federation, 5 Pakistani players were ranked in the top 10 in U-17 & U-19 category.
Abbas Zeb rank 3rd
Uzair Shaukat rank 5th
Haris Qasim rank 6th
Kashif Asif rank 7th
Abbas Zeb 8th
This is a rather remarkable feat especially considering that there haven’t been ranking tournaments in Pakistan in the past 9 months. Players gained points from World Junior Championships and Asian Junior Super Series (AJSS).
Pakistan have struggled to match its former glory in Squash courts. It is perhaps time that money is invested on coaching and in providing opportunities to talented youngsters rather than having tournaments for seniors who have so far struggled to compete at the top level.
