Zafar Gohar is a 25-year-old slow left-arm orthodox spin bowler from Lahore, Pakistan. Gohar gained national recognition when PCB picked the young bowler to represent Pakistan in the U-15 World Championship hosted by the West Indies in 2008. He was named in the Pakistan U-19 squad four years later. Following Zafar’s performance in the U-19 World Cup, Zarat Taraqiati Bank Limited, one of Pakistan’s largest departmental squads, signed him up to skipper their U-19 team. From there to the senior team was a short step up that allowed him to play alongside such players as Yasir Hameed, Abdul Razaq and Saeed Ajmal.
