Sumail grew up in Karachi and he started playing video games in local internet cafes. He couldn’t afford the bills for the net café so he sold his bike to a stranger just to pay the bills. This was the level of his determination towards playing these games, that earned him the name he enjoys today.

He started playing Dota at the age of 7 and now he is one of the most popular and successful players in the world. Determination and confidence leads to success and so happened with Sumail. He works nine hours a day and he takes all this very seriously his mother supported him in every aspect.

Being a pride and a gem of Pakistan, Sumail and his family leaves a strong message for the entire world. Finding out your passions and believing in yourself is the key. Finding out our hidden abilities and talents is the basic seed we need to sow and parents must give enough room to their children to let their creativity blossom.
