Former Pakistan all-rounder Yasir Arafat believes spinner Nauman Ali deserved to make his international debut a while back.
Nauman has been one of the top performers in domestic cricket for quite some time and was finally rewarded with a call-up to the national team for the recent two-Test series against South Africa.
He made his debut in the series and took eight wickets at an average of 21.50.
In the first Test in Karachi, the 34-year-old became just the 12th Pakistan player to take a five-wicket haul on Test debut.

“Wonderful debut for Nauman Ali. Consistent performer in domestic cricket… deserved this chance a while back, but better late than never,” Yasir said on Twitter.
