Pakistan and Quetta Gladiators spin-bowling all-rounder Mohammad Nawaz said he wants to have a substantial impact with the ball in the remaining Pakistan Super League (PSL) matches.
Prior to the tournament’s postponement, he scored 89 runs in five matches at an average of 29.66 and a strike-rate of 128.98.
He also took one wicket at an average of 96 and an economy rate of 7.38.
Recently, Nawaz took three wickets in the one ODI he played against South Africa at an average of 11.33.
He also picked up five wickets in the T20 series at an average of 25.60 and an economy rate of 8.53.
In the one T20 International he featured in against Zimbabwe, the 27-year-old accumulated nine runs and went wicketless.
Nawaz also noted that he believes his abilities as a finisher are getting better.
“The Karachi-leg was a tough one for us but the victory in our last match there gave us a lot of confidence. We are a team known for our comebacks and fight backs and we head to Abu Dhabi with our spirits high,” he told pcb.com.pk.
“At a personal level, I am keen to make match winning contributions both with bat and ball. The Karachi-leg was decent for me in terms of my batting performances while finishing a couple of games for Pakistan in recent T20Is has renewed my belief in my abilities.
“I have always enjoyed bowling in the UAE and I am preparing myself for making a substantial impact with the ball on pitches which can be conducive to spin bowling.”
