Some last minute changes to Pakistan’s World Cup squad has seen Asif Ali stage a comeback to the national side, after profiting from his place in the team during the ODI series versus England. Perfectly utilizing the opportunity, Asif smacked a couple of fifties across the 5 games unleashing his destruction with the bat.
Asif’s timely return to form is a good sign for Pakistan’s lower middle order which was desperately seeking a power hitter to fill the slot. Chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq has also dished out praise on Asif’s remarkable skill in clearing the boundary at will and has rated him as a vital cog in Pakistan’s lineup for the World Cup.
“Asif Ali has proved his firepower can be an asset for Pakistan in the tournament,” Inzamam told the press. Asif recently suffered the tragic loss of his daughter to cancer, and will join his team in England after the mourning period.
