England speed demon Jofra Archer said Pakistan left-arm seamer Shaheen Shah Afridi has the ability to extract more bounce from pitches in comparison to other bowlers.
Afridi was in brilliant form throughout the T20 World Cup as he picked up seven wickets in six matches at an average of 24.14 and an economy rate of 7.04.
In the T20 series against Bangladesh, which Pakistan won 3-0, he only featured in one match and recorded figures of 2-15 off four overs.
“He also extracts bounce out of pitches that others can’t,” Archer wrote in his column for the Daily Mail.
Pakistan will now play two Tests against Bangladesh, with the series beginning on November 26.
Pakistan squad for Bangladesh Test series: Babar Azam (c), Mohammad Rizwan (wicketkeeper), Abdullah Shafique, Abid Ali, Azhar Ali, Bilal Asif, Faheem Ashraf, Fawad Alam, Hasan Ali, Imam-ul-Haq, Kamran Ghulam, Mohammad Abbas, Mohammad Nawaz, Naseem Shah, Nauman Ali, Sajid Khan, Sarfaraz Ahmed (wicketkeeper), Saud Shakeel, Shaheen Afridi, Zahid Mahmood
