Following a prolonged absence due to injury, Haris Sohail has returned to form in emphatic fashion, forming one of the core players in Pakistan’s middle order for the World Cup. Recently conjuring two magnificent centuries against Australia, the team will thus be banking upon Haris’ ability to anchor the innings.
However, one point of criticism often directed towards the left-hander is his incapacity to up the scoring rate and his career strike rate indicates an outdated approach to playing the modern game. Replying to these genuine concerns, Haris has promised a more aggressive style of play in England and Wales next month.
“Cricket is a different game nowadays. In ODIs a total above 300 is now par, but not in the UAE where pitches are slower & you need to take more time. But definitely that applies in countries like England. So over there, you'll see us play more aggressively,” he said on this important matter.
