Iconic Pakistan batsman Mohammad Yousuf said the Australia pace duo of Pat Cummins and Mitchell Starc are “quality bowlers”.
In the recent series against Pakistan, Cummins, who captains Australia in the longest format, was the joint-highest wicket-taker with 12 wickets at an average of 22.50.
As for Starc, he claimed eight wickets at an average of 34.12.
Given how quick the pair are and the fact that they can swing the ball, Yousuf conceded that it is very tough for batsmen to play them.
“It’s easy for someone like me sitting outside the field to tell the batters to play in a certain way but the fact is that it’s a tough job to face quality bowlers like Cummins and Starc,” he was quoted as saying by Saj Sadiq on Twitter.
Cummins is currently representing the Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League (IPL) and has picked up four wickets in four matches at an average of 47.50.
