AB de Villiers, the legendary South Africa batsman, said he would pick Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Asif to bowl for his life.
Explaining why, he noted that Asif was “unplayable” when he had the new ball in his hand.
“Mohammad Asif…uff! That guy with the new ball [was] unplayable,” De Villiers was quoted as saying by Cricket Pakistan.
