Former Pakistan captain Mushtaq Mohammad says he has been impressed by watching the Pakistan Under-19 side as they prepared for the Under-19 World Cup.
They are now taking on Sri Lanka in the quarter-finals in the United Arab Emirates but Mohammad watched them play England last summer.
He says they are looking in good shape, and that has been borne out by their campaign so far.
Although they lost against arch-rivals (and reigning champions) India in their first group match, they bounced back with comprehensive victories against Scotland and Papua New Guinea to qualify.
Pakistan won the ICC Under-19 World Cup in 2006 and 2008, then lost the final to Australia in 2010.
Mohammad captained Pakistan between 1978 and 1979 and played 57 Tests and 10 One-Day Internationals in all.
