Former Australia spinner Brad Hogg said Pakistan pace ace Haris Rauf is a “very clever” bowler.
Rauf has been in red-hot form in the T20 World Cup, and started the tournament by taking figures of 1-25 off four overs in Pakistan’s 10-wicket win over India.
Pakistan’s win was a historic one as it was the first time they beat India in a World Cup match.
Rauf was given the Man of the Match award in his side’s five-wicket win over New Zealand for claiming figures of 4-22 off four overs.
As for the match against Afghanistan, who Pakistan beat by five wickets, he registered figures of 1-37.
Against Namibia, which the men in green won by 45 runs, Rauf ended up with figures of 1-25.
“He is very clever with the way he approaches bowling,” Hogg said on his YouTube channel as quoted by Cricket Pakistan.
The men in green have booked their spot in the semi-finals and their next game will be against Scotland on Sunday.
