Mohammad Hafeez, the former all-rounder, believes that Pakistan batsman Salman Ali Agha is a potential middle order candidate in ODIs.
Salman has performed well in the 11 ODIs he has played thus far, scoring 337 runs at an average of 48.14.
Since the men in green need to strengthen their middle order, Hafeez feels the 29-year-old’s name has to be in the mix considering his solid performances to date.
“Not to forget, Salman Agha is a potential candidate as well,” he was quoted as saying by Cricket Pakistan.
Salman was recently involved in the two-Test series against Sri Lanka and scored 221 runs, which included a career-best 132 not out, at an average of 221.
Pakistan will now face Afghanistan in a three-match ODI series, which will be played in Sri Lanka from August 22 to 26.
They will then take part in the Asia Cup, which will be held in Pakistan and Sri Lanka from August 30 to September 17.
