People have always been fascinated by everything extreme, especially tall things. One such fascination is the tallest humans, the world record for which is held by Robert Wadlow, who was 8 feet 11 inches tall at the time of his death in 1940 at the age of 22.
Similarly, in cricket, the tallest cricketer is Pakistan’s Mohammad Irfan, who stands at 7 feet 1 inch tall, but that record may soon be broken by Pakistan Super League (PSL) franchise Lahore Qalandars’ new recruit Muhammad Mudassar.
The 21-year-old stands at a magnificent height of 7 feet 5 inches and hails from a poor family and has been the center of attention at the finals of the ‘Battle of Qalandars'. The youngster will be training at Lahore Qalandars high-performance center for one year, where the cricketer would hone his skills.
Talking about his unique height, Mudassar says he finds picking up shoes the most difficult part of his daily routine. The bowler is hopeful that unlike other super tall players fitness will not be a hindrance to his career.
Qalandars’ Ahmer Najeeb shared a photo with the giant and this left the Twitterverse in shock and awe at the fact that there can be a taller cricketer than Mohammad Irfan.
