Shadab Khan is making a comeback to the national side after recovering from a viral disease. The talented leg-spinner wants to play a crucial role for Pakistan in the upcoming mega event and he also looked in good form during the warm-up game against Afghanistan.
“It's a very important role. With batting (friendly) tracks, the par score will be 300. So, if you take wickets in the middle overs, you have a good chance to win games. On these batting surfaces, we have to take wickets, otherwise, they'll score 350-plus, so if you take the wickets you can contain them under 300,” the young leggie stated.
As the World Cup is expected to be dominated by spinners during the middle overs, Shadab’s target is also on giving his team the breakthroughs when he’s given the ball. Pakistan will face West Indies in their first World Cup game on 31st and Shadab's spin will play a crucial role against the Caribbean boys.
