Ex-spinner Tauseef Ahmed said it has been brilliant to see opener Abdullah Shafique batting the way he has in Test cricket.
Shafique is only in the infancy of his career, but has already made a big impact as he has accumulated 736 runs in seven Tests, which includes two centuries and four fifties, at an average of 66.90.
What makes his performances even more impressive is the fact that he is able to stay “cool and calm” under pressure.
“The way Abdullah Shafique batted, it was brilliant. So cool and calm,” Tauseef told Cricket Pakistan.
