Pakistan chief selector Mohammad Wasim said big-hitters Asif Ali and Khushdil Shah are incredibly talented players.
Wasim’s comments come after the duo were included in Pakistan’s T20 World Cup squad.
Wasim admitted that Asif and Khushdil may not have impressive numbers that blow people away, but they more than make up for it with their “prowess” and ability to score quick runs.
“Asif Ali and Khushdil Shah may not have impressive numbers against their names but hardly anyone can doubt their tremendous talent and prowess,” he was quoted as saying in a Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) press release.
Pakistan will kick off their T20 World Cup campaign against India on October 24 in Dubai.
