Pakistan batsman Usman Salahuddin has said that he is starting to convert dot balls into ones and twos.
Salahuddin noted that by doing this, he has begun increasing his strike-rate and improved his ability to rotate the strike.
“I analysed my batting and looked at improving my strike-rotation and trying to cut down the number of dot-balls. By that I mean trying to turn some of the dot balls into ones or twos and looking to get towards a strike-rate of 50 in 4-day cricket,” he told PakPassion.
In the 2020/21 Quaid-e-Azam Trophy, Salahuddin was the fourth-highest run-scorer with 924 runs in 11 matches for Central Punjab, which included a career-best 219 not out and eight half-centuries, at an average of 48.63.
Despite starring in the tournament, the 30-year-old was unable to get into the Test team for the recent two-Test series against South Africa, even though many people believed that he deserved to be recalled.
Salahuddin last played international cricket in June 2018.
