Former Pakistan left-arm spinner Abdur Rehman said leg-spinner Zahid Mahmood is a fearless bowler who has plenty of variations.
Zahid took 12 wickets in nine matches for Southern Punjab in the National T20 Cup at an average of 24.83.
He was the third-highest wicket-taker in the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy with 52 wickets in 10 games at an average of 26.94.
In the Pakistan Cup, the 33-year-old was the second-highest wicket-taker with 19 wickets in 10 matches at an average of 24.89.
He played for the Quetta Gladiators in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) and prior to the tournament being postponed, he claimed six wickets in four games at an average of 21.33.
Zahid made his T20 International debut during Pakistan’s home series against South Africa and was highly impressive as he took figures of 3-40.
“You have to be a little fearless. We have seen in the last season that he bowls his variations and does not become fearful,” Abdur told Cricket Pakistan.
“This is a good thing for him. This will come in handy for him in the future. This also shows that he has awareness of his bowling.”
