Throughout his ascent in the cricketing world, Ali Naqvi has been praised for his compact technique and ability to play with remarkable precision. His straight bat, along with his unwavering focus, has propelled him to great heights in the game, culminating in a breathtaking Test century on his international debut.

Naqvi’s journey to becoming an international cricket sensation was nothing short of meteoric. Despite playing very little first-class cricket in his home country, he managed to catch the attention of selectors with his outstanding performances for his team, the House Building Finance Corporation, in the domestic Grade-II competition. Impressed by his talent, he was subsequently selected for the prestigious Pakistan A tour of England in 1997.

During the England tour, Ali Naqvi showcased his true potential and left a lasting impression on all who witnessed his brilliance. His exceptional performances earned him a spot in the PCB Board XI against the visiting South African team, marking his first-class debut in Pakistan.

His debut century showcased his immense potential and provided a glimpse into the bright future that awaited him.

Yet, he remained resolute and undeterred despite this temporary setback, knowing that his immense talent would once again shine through.
