In the two-Test series, he finished as the highest wicket-taker with 12 wickets at an average of 19.66.
In fact, 10 of Hasan’s 12 wickets came in the second Test, where he took five-wicket hauls in both innings.

“That was a special performance by Pakistan, always great seeing Hasan Ali bowl well!” Mukhtar said on Twitter.
The 26-year-old was recalled to the Pakistan team after starring in the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy, where he captained Central Punjab.
Hasan finished as the fourth-highest wicket-taker in the competition with 43 wickets in nine matches at an average of 20.06.
With the number of wickets he claimed, Hasan had the most wickets among pace bowlers in the tournament.
He also got the job done with the bat in the final against Khyber Pakhtunkhwa as he smashed an unbeaten 106, which came off 61 balls and included 10 boundaries and seven sixes.
His efforts nearly helped Central Punjab defend their title, but instead, the match ended as a tie and the trophy was shared between the two teams.
Mukhtar has also been in great form lately as he was the third-highest run-scorer in the Pakistan Cup, where he scored 597 runs in 10 matches for Southern Punjab, which included two centuries and three fifties, at an average of 66.33.
