Former Pakistan head coach Misbah-ul-Haq said spin-bowling all-rounder Shadab Khan is a superb batsman.
His comments come after Shadab starred with both the bat and ball while captaining Islamabad United in PSL 7.
Shadab scored 268 runs in nine matches, which included two fifties, at an average of 33.50 and a strike-rate of 162.42.
He also claimed 19 wickets at an average of 10.89 and an economy rate of 6.46.
“He came in from Under-19 and I think his first match, he won the game against KPK. He scored 40 odd runs at a very crucial stage and from that point, I could see that his batting ability is superb,” Misbah told Cricwick.
Shadab is likely to feature in the upcoming limited overs series against Australia, which will consist of three ODIs and a one-off T20 International.
The white-ball series will be played in Rawalpindi and begin on March 29.
