Pakistan opener Abid Ali said Abdullah Shafique “was outstanding” in the two-Test series against Bangladesh.
Shafique made his Test debut in the series and showed off his skills with the bat as he scored 150 runs, which included back-to-back half-centuries in his first match, at an average of 50.
Abid, meanwhile, was in sensational form as well as he amassed 263 runs, which included a century and a fifty, at an average of 87.66.
“He was outstanding and my best wishes are with him,” Abid was quoted as saying by Cricket Pakistan.
The men in green now playing a limited overs series against the West Indies in Karachi, but neither Abid nor Shafique have been picked.
The three-match T20 series began on Monday, while the three-match ODI series gets underway on Saturday.
