Former Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq said opening batsman Shan Masood knows how to rotate the strike.
In the Pakistan Super League (PSL), Masood scored 209 runs in seven games for the Multan Sultans, which included two half-centuries, at an average of 29.85 and a strike-rate of 142.17.
Masood was the third-highest run-scorer in the Kashmir Premier League (KPL) as he scored 254 runs in five matches for the Bagh Stallions, which included three fifties, at an average of 50.80 and a strike-rate of 144.31.
As for the ongoing National T20 Cup, he has amassed 71 runs in six games for Sindh at an average of 11.83 and a strike-rate of 84.52.
“He knows how to rotate strike,” Inzamam said on his YouTube channel as quoted by ARY Sports.
Despite his impressive performances in the PSL and KPL, Masood was overlooked for the T20 World Cup.
Pakistan will kick off their T20 World Cup campaign against India on October 24 in Dubai.
