Former Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq said he knew he had to work on Shadab Khan’s batting the moment he became head coach of the national team.
The ex-captain sees so much potential in Shadab and wanted to help him develop his game.
Shadab was in magnificent form in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) as he led by example with the bat and ball while captaining Islamabad United.
He accumulated 268 runs in nine matches, which included two fifties, at an average of 33.50 and a strike-rate of 162.42.
He also took 19 wickets at an average of 10.89 and an economy rate of 6.46.
“So the moment I became the coach in Australia I, alongside Shahid Aslam, sat down with him and worked a lot on his batting,” Misbah told Cricwick.
Shadab is now likely to be part of Pakistan’s limited overs squad for the white-ball series against Australia, which begins on March 29.
