KARACHI: Former Test cricketer Rashid Latif realized that he should have put his son into playing cricket, probably the most followed game in Asia right now. Speaking in ‘Sports Room’ Eid Special, Latif revealed his biggest regret in life to date. “The biggest regret of my life, I didn’t let my son play cricket, I should have,” he said.
“Everyone’s sons have been playing cricket so my son could also have played it. Actually, there was fear somewhere that at a certain point people will put me behind his status,” he added.
Upon being asked, Latif said that today’s generation can’t understand the struggle and hard work the players used to face in earlier times. “It is hard for our children to face such situations which we had used to face. In fact, I don’t want my son to be in those struggling phases through which I suffered in my early career days,” he concluded.
