Well-known cricket commentator Mike Haysman said Pakistan pace bowler Shahnawaz Dahani “is the sort of bloke who lights that fire”.
Dahani has been in excellent 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 included in Pakistan’s T20 World Cup squad, but as a reserve player.
“He has got energy about his game, he is the sort of bloke who lights that fire,” 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.
