Legendary Pakistan pace bowler Shoaib Akhtar has advised 19-year-old pace bowling sensation Muhammad Musa to have an “aggressive attitude” and utilise the short ball during the national team’s tour of Australia.
Musa was picked in the Test and Twenty20 squads for the tour, which will consist of three Twenty20 Internationals from November 3 to 8, and two Tests from November 21 to December 3.
Musa represented Islamabad United in this year’s Pakistan Super League (PSL) and took eight wickets in seven matches at an average of 29.37.
“I have told Musa to bowl with an aggressive attitude and announce himself by bowling short deliveries even if he goes for runs,” Akhtar was quoted as saying by the Business Recorder.
