Mohammad Yousuf sees a lot of potential in Pakistan opener Abdullah Shafique, saying his future looks very bright.

This comes after Shafique impressed everyone with his performance in the recent Test series against Australia.

The 22-year-old scored 397 runs, which included a century and two fifties, at an average of 79.40.

Even though Australia won the series 1-0, Shafique was one of the standout players and took big strides in cementing his spot in the team.

“Abdullah’s future is bright,” Yousuf, who is serving as Pakistan’s batting coach for the Australia series, was quoted as saying by A-Sports.

Shafique didn’t feature in the first ODI on Tuesday, which Pakistan lost by 88 runs, but will be hoping to get selected in the playing XI for the second ODI on Thursday.
