Pakistan seamer Mohammad Asif has said that he never stopped bowling until he completed his five-for.
Asif’s comments came while he was talking about the performance of the Pakistan bowlers in the ongoing Test series against New Zealand.
The 38-year-old said that he used to “salivate after looking at [the] green tops in New Zealand” as he knew it would offer him a lot of assistance and result in him getting wickets.
“We used to salivate after looking at [the] green tops in New Zealand. There was no question of leaving the ball as a fast bowler. I never used to leave the ball before taking a five-wicket haul,” he said on Pakistan wicketkeeper-batsman Kamran Akmal’s YouTube channel as quoted by Geo Super.
Asif took 106 wickets in 23 Tests at an average of 24.36, 46 wickets in 38 ODIs at an average of 33.13 and 13 wickets in 11 T20 Internationals at an average of 26.38.
