The Pakistani bowling lineup has been below par in recent times as they have conceded some big totals against some of the top sides of the world. Once Pakistan’s premium pacer, Hasan Ali has been a major let down for the green shirts in the last 12 months as he has hardly taken any wickets while giving away a lot of runs.
The hero of the 2017 Champions Trophy triumph seems to have lost his flair as he has lacked consistency in his lines and lengths. Hasan has now become the most expensive bowler for Pakistan in the World Cup as he has conceded 256 runs in 33 overs at an average of 128 and a bizarre strike rate of 99. The two wickets he has taken in the tournament have not helped the team much as he has gone at an economy rate of almost 8 runs per over.
Hasan’s miserable form with the ball might see him getting dropped from the national side after the conclusion of the World Cup as he needs to go back to the domestic system and work on his wicket-taking abilities which was once his forte.
