Pakistan fast bowler Hasan Ali said the only option he has is to hit the ball hard since he usually bats in the death overs of a match.
Hasan’s comments come after he expressed his desire to become an all-rounder in all formats.
With the 27-year-old boasting strike-rates of 123.42 and 188.88 in ODIs and T20 Internationals respectively, he knows he can be a difference-maker if he scores quick runs towards the end of the innings.
“I usually get to bat in death overs in T20Is and the only option I have at that point is to hit the ball hard,” he told pcb.com.pk.
Hasan is part of Pakistan’s squad for the T20 World Cup and will likely have an opportunity to show off his big-hitting skills during the tournament.
Pakistan will kick off their T20 World Cup campaign against India on October 24 in Dubai.
