Pakistan left-arm seamer Shaheen Shah Afridi said pace bowler Hasan Ali backs him a lot, which gives him confidence and helps him take wickets.
In the recently-concluded two-Test series against Bangladesh, Afridi took 10 wickets, which included a five-wicket haul, at an average of 13.60.
Hasan was also in excellent form as he claimed nine wickets, which also included a five-for, at an average of 15.55.
Thanks to their efforts with the ball, Pakistan whitewashed Bangladesh 2-0.
“He backed me a lot and it helped me take wickets,” Afridi was quoted as saying by A-Sports.
Afridi will now be looking to maintain his red-hot form in the upcoming limited overs series against the West Indies.
Hasan won’t play against the men from the Caribbean as he has been rested.
The three-match T20 series will begin on Monday, while the three-match ODI series gets underway on Saturday.
