Leg-spinner, Shadab Khan is the primary spin weapon for captain Sarfaraz Ahmed and has been very effective in breaking partnerships in the middle overs for Pakistan. In the match against South Africa, he broke the spine of the Proteas batting line-up by picking up three crucial wickets.
As the weather conditions of England are changing from cold wet to sunny, it is expected that spinners will get more assistance from the pitch in the coming days. The young Shadab hopes to take full advantage of the change in conditions to prove vital for Pakistan.
“I expect with changing weather thing will get better in the coming days. I will try to give my best for the team,” said Shadab after Sunday’s match. Earlier, Pakistan coach Mickey Arthur also predicted that changing English conditions could propel spinners to play a bigger role in the World Cup.
