Pakistan will be banking their hopes on the fiery pace stocks in the squad to light up the stage of the World Cup. Right-armer Hasan Ali will be key to Pakistan’s pursuit of World Cup glory, and he has already validated his credentials by leading the Men in Green to their maiden Champions Trophy title two years ago.
Rising pace sensation Shaheen Afridi is another promising name in the Pakistan ranks, who can wreak havoc on opposing sides on his day. Talking about the expanding skillset possessed by Shaheen, Hasan expressed his admiration for the teenage prodigy, appreciating the hard yards he is putting on his bowling.
“He is young, he is learning, but already he has a wise head on young shoulders. He has been a brilliant find for Pakistan cricket and he could be one of our trump cards at the World Cup. He's an excellent team-mate and a guy who I really enjoy bowling alongside,” Hasan shared his thoughts on Shaheen.
