Pakistan pace bowler Hasan Ali revealed that his power-hitting is getting better as he has been working on it during training.
Hasan’s comments come after he said that the only option he has when he comes out to bat is to hit the ball hard since he usually comes to the crease during the death overs.
The 27-year-old currently has strike-rates of 123.42 and 188.88 in ODIs and T20 Internationals respectively, and knows that he can have a huge impact on a game if he scores quick runs at the end of the innings.
“I am working to improve my power-hitting in the practice sessions,” he told pcb.com.pk.
Hasan has been included in Pakistan’s team for the T20 World Cup and will likely have an opportunity to show off the improvements he has made in his power-hitting.
Pakistan will kick off their T20 World Cup campaign against India on October 24 in Dubai.
