Veteran Pakistan all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez believes the spinner will play “a major role” during the World Cup.
Hafeez admitted that Pakistan will need to find ways to take wickets and put the opposing team on the back foot.
With that in mind, he admitted that the spinners will contribute to that massively.
“I believe that cricket has evolved massively, but at the same time you still need that wicket-taking ability in your bowling. If you don’t have that, you can’t stop any team,” he was quoted as saying by the Pakistan Cricket Board’s website.
“Your spinners will play a major role and at the same time you must have some mystery in you that can cause confusion in the other team.”
Pakistan will kick off their World Cup campaign against the West Indies in Nottingham on Friday.
