The duo shared four wickets each in the first innings
Pakistan pacer Hasan Ali has opened up about sharing the new ball with Shaheen Shah Afridi saying that they have formed a ‘good bowling pair’.
The duo shared four wickets each as the Men-in-Green restricted Zimbabwe to 176 in their first innings during the first Test of the two-match series in Harare on Thursday.
“I like bowling with Shaheen Afridi,” said Hasan as quoted by Cricket Pakistan. “We have formed a good bowling pair, especially considering the right, left-arm combination.”
Hasan was also satisfied with his own bowling performance after making a comeback in the team following a lengthy injury spell.
“Every good performance gives a player confidence,” he said. “Especially in Test cricket as it is a challenging task. I’m happy to do well after making a comeback in the national side.”
Commenting on the overall team’s performance, the Islamabad United pacer said: “We had planned to take control of the match on the first day and thankfully we succeeded. Hopefully, we will continue our good performance and win the match.”
