Renowned commentator Mike Haysman believes Pakistan speedster Shahnawaz Dahani is a “priceless” bowler as he takes wickets and “lifts the whole team”.
Dahani has been in dominant form in the ongoing National T20 Cup as he has taken nine wickets in seven matches for Sindh at an average of 16.77 and an economy rate of 6.96.
The 23-year-old has also been picked in Pakistan’s T20 World Cup team, but as a reserve player.
“He lifts the whole team when he picks up a wicket and I think that sort of stuff is priceless,” Haysman said on the Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) podcast as quoted by Cricket Pakistan.
Pakistan will kick off their T20 World Cup campaign against India on October 24 in Dubai.
