One of the highlights of the currently halted edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) was the prowess of Haider Ali. With a fearless approach, the rising batting sensation took on many bowlers. Doing so, he was able to accumulate 239 runs in 9 innings at 29.87. Moreover, a strike-rate of close to 160 allowed him to draw a lot of attention.
Recently, former Pakistan captain Mohammad Yousuf came forward to share his verdict on the star batsman of Peshawar Zalmi. The cricketer-turned expert is of the view that Haider contains a plethora of talent, but it needs to be polished properly as he finds fault with his shot selection.
Yousuf, who represented Pakistan in 381 International games, also urged Haider to follow the likes of Virat Kohli, Babar Azam and Steve Smith as these players score a plethora of runs without taking too many risks.
“Haider plays a lot of shots and would need to improve his shot selection. If he wants to improve his overall game, he should focus more on his technique because slogging is comparatively easy. Try to follow players like Babar and Virat. Please don’t become a falooda player or a slogger,” said by 45-year old.
