Fakhar Zaman said he is really impressed with the “range of shots” fellow Pakistan top order batsman Saim Ayub possesses.
The 21-year-old shot to stardom during the 2023 Pakistan Super League (PSL), where he amassed 341 runs in 12 matches for the Peshawar Zalmi, which included five half-centuries, at an average of 28.41 and a strike-rate of 165.53.
Due to his consistent performances in PSL 8, he was fast-tracked into the national team and featured in the white-ball series against Afghanistan and New Zealand.
“His range of shots is really good,” Zaman was quoted as saying by Cricket Pakistan.
