Pakistan were handed a brutal hammering in the recent Test series in Australia where they crashed to successive innings defeats. The tourists’ inexperienced bowling attack bore the brunt of the criticism as they could register only 13 wickets over the two games down under.
Amidst the backlash directed at the bowlers for failing to deliver decent performances, Pakistan’s Test skipper Azhar Ali has spoken on the need for patience with regards to the pacers. Pakistan’s current fast bowling stocks boast the presence of two teenagers and a debutant but Azhar feels they have enough potential to become a group of world-beaters.
The Pakistan batting mainstay admitted a lack of experience was a major reason behind their bowling woes but the situation would only improve with the passage of time.
Shaheen Afridi, Babar Azam, Haris Sohail and Abid Ali are celebrating a wicket taken by Naseem Shah.
“We cannot write the new fast bowlers off straightaway. They are young, but experience is something they can get by playing more cricket, and we can't buy it,” Azhar told reporters.
