Former Sri Lanka captain Mahela Jayawardene said Pakistan shouldn’t be concerned about pace bowler Hasan Ali’s dip in form.
This comes after the T20 World Cup semi-final against Australia, where Hasan conceded 44 runs off his four overs and failed to take a wicket as Pakistan crashed out of the tournament following a five-wicket loss.
Overall, Hasan failed to live up to expectations in the T20 World Cup as he picked up five wickets in six matches at an average of 41.40 and an economy rate of 9.00.
“I don’t think that is a huge concern for Pakistan,” Jayawardene told ESPNcricinfo as quoted by Cricket Pakistan.
