Hafeez wants bowling to step up in World Cup

The Pakistan cricket team would have to get its act back together in the upcoming ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 as they have been out of sorts in the bowling, and fielding departments of late.

The recent ODI series against England proved to be a reality check for the team management as the bowling was thrashed quite badly. Bowling, which is usually considered to be Pakistan’s strongest suit, has been the main reason behind their recent failures in ODI cricket.

Experienced all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez has urged the bowlers to step up in the all-important tournament as he feels that bowlers need to evolve and adopt according to the changing needs of the game.

“I believe that cricket has evolved massively, but at the same time you still need that wicket-taking ability in your bowling. If you don’t have that, you can’t stop any team. Your spinners will play a major role and at the same time you must have some mystery in you that can cause confusion in the other team,” he said.
