For the first time, a Sikh has secured a place at Pakistan’s national cricket academy.
Mahinder Pal Singh, who hails from Nankana Sahib in Lahore, is among the list of top 30 emerging cricketers in the country, according to news reports.
Pakistan’s cricket team has many Hindus and Christians. But the cricketing history has seen only 7 non Muslim cricketers representing the country.
Singh is the first Pakistani Sikh and the 8th non Muslim to represent Pakistan.Know About the Pakistan Cricket Board
