Omer became involved in the game through his family who all played, perhaps his greatest influence was his cousin Majid Haq who he played with as a youngster and who played for Scotland at various age groups – and is a full international. Omer regards the two highlights of my cricketing career to date as winning the U19 2002 European championships for Scotland and qualifying for the 2004 World Cup in Bangladesh as runners up in the 2003 European U19 championship. He has already done some traveling on cricket business as part of the West District cricket squad that toured South Africa in 2002 – which he described as “an experience of a lifetime”. Omer is another member of the squad who recognizes the contribution to his development to date made by his club, Ferguslie, and various national coaches. He is a club-mate of fellow squad member Rajeev Routray and, as a left hand bat, lists Brian Lara (West Indies) as his favourite player.
