Mohammad Hamza Khan’s spectacular triumph in the world of junior squash has not only made Pakistan proud but has also highlighted the vast potential that lies within the country’s youth. COAS General Munir was quick to acknowledge the significance of nurturing and supporting such remarkable talents, emphasising that they serve as a source of inspiration for the entire nation.

After 37 long years, Pakistan became the World Junior Squash champion as young Hamza Khan made a comeback to beat his Egyptian rival Mohamed Zakaria to win the finale in Melbourne last month.

Khan claimed a 3-1 victory over Zakaria in the finale, with a scoreline of 10-12, 14-12, 11-3 and 11-6.

This was Pakistan’s first World Junior Squash title in nearly four decades as the last Pakistani player to lift this trophy was Jansher Khan, who won the title 37 years ago in 1986.
