Pakistan spinner Bilal Asif has insisted that he aims to “give 110 percent” whenever he plays for his country.
Asif made his Test debut in the first Test against Australia in Dubai and stole the spotlight by taking six wickets in the Baggy Greens’ first innings.
With Asif having enjoyed a memorable debut, he is determined to play with his heart on his sleeve and do everything in his power to help Pakistan be successful.
“My intention is to give 110 percent when given the chance to play for Pakistan, the rest is in the hands of the Almighty,” he was quoted as saying by PakPassion. “I have been bowling for a while in first-class and One-Day games in Pakistan so I have a fair idea of what help you can get from the pitch.
“So, taking into account the fact that the pitch does help the spinners in UAE, I tried to vary the pace a bit and thankfully I got good results due to that.
“It was my good luck that I took six wickets, but I wasn’t bowling that well in the first session, and obviously as a debutant, I felt pressure as I wasn’t getting any wickets. But, I put that out of my mind and bowled with focus, and the Almighty rewarded me.”
