Former Pakistan batsman Haroon Rasheed expressed his frustration at the fact that big-hitting batsman Asif Ali isn’t being given a proper run to prove his worth.

Rasheed pointed out that Asif is constantly in and out of the squad, and questioned how the 29-year-old is supposed to perform consistently.

Asif played two games in the three-match ODI series and scored 21 runs at an average of 10.50.

In the four-match T20 series, he featured in two games, but only batted once and made five runs.

The 29-year-old wasn’t selected for the first T20 International against Zimbabwe.

“The problem I see at the moment is that the nucleus, 15-20 players, for the World Cup has not been formed,” Rasheed told Cricket Pakistan. “The team management, selection committee and captain should be on the same page, especially considering that there are only a handful of matches left before the World Cup.

“For instance, Asif Ali plays one match and then he is dropped.”

Asif returned for the second T20 International against Zimbabwe and failed to impress as he was dismissed for one run.

Pakistan suffered a shock 19-run defeat in the match as they were bowled out for 99 in their chase of 119.

As a result of this, Zimbabwe secured their first-ever T20 International win over the men in green.

  1. When you’re part of the PCB Management, Selection Process or Team Management you give damn to such things but when you’re out, then you suddenly come to know about the problems. Haroon Rasheed sahab, aap jaise so-called Managers aur Selectors ki wajah se hi aaj Pakistan Cricket Team ka yeh haal hai.

  2. Mr Haroin Rashid , kindly don’t support this cricketer any more. Just tell me his average in the last 10 matches , almost Zero. He has not touched more than than 10 balls in each match.
    Enough is enough. Let him play domestic, improve his game & come back.
    What he did in South Africa ( 2nd grade team ) & then in Zimbabaw (Zero grade team ).
    Hieder, Asif & Hafeez complete failure in the recent series.

  3. He is not a player who can represent Pak on international level, he didn’t deserve a place in Pak team, and got so many chances not one match. So be aware

  4. You have all merit to play for Pakistan if u r Islamabad United player. Batting order failure is nothing new. Since SA Tour there is no bating and bowling available. Captain does not want good batsman in the team so he will remain No. 1 player in the side. This whole managment, coaches, captain are garbage living few players. Why Sharjeel is sitting outside and asif ali is playing. Asif cannot make runs against goid bowling. He is only a club cricketer. Thanks God we got ride of Hussain Talat. Another super hero of Islamabad United.

  5. Unfortunately Asif Ali do not have good shot selection.
    He targets the fielder in the deep.
    He has to learn to hit in gaps
