Hasan Ali Dreams of Winning a World Cup and be the Best Bowler of the Tournament
Pakistan fast bowler Hasan Ali who has gone on to become a spearhead of the national team stated the fact that the Pakistan skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed’s shouting at the players doesn’t necessarily mean that he is angry, but it motivates the team to keep the focus on the game throughout a match.
During an interview with Skysports Hasan revealed the fact that Sarfaraz’s anguish in the field doesn’t allow them to lose concentration on the game.
“Sarfaraz’s shouting isn’t really him getting angry at us, it’s actually his way of reminding us that we need to keep our focus, not lose concentration and make sure that we are on our game.”
Hasan Ali was impressed with the performance of Usman Shinwari who was in his first series and did a commendable job.
“It was almost like I was bowling and taking those wickets that Usman was,” he said.
He also heaped praises on leg-spinner Shadab Khan who have gone on to become a match winner for the team especially in the limited overs format of the game.
“It is a treat to watch him perform and great to be a part of such an experience,” he added.
“Faheem Ashraf and Fakhar Zaman are two other new players who have come in and settled into international cricket so well. Imam-ul-Haq recently made a hundred on debut and there are so many other performances to enjoy as well,” he said.
Shadab was recently involved in a controversy when he apparently tried to flirt with a Pakistani girl on twitter but the girl leaked the screenshots of those message on her twitter handle.
Referring to the 2019 World Cup scheduled to be played in England and Wales, Hasan said it is his dreams of winning a World Cup final. Pakistan’s one and only World Cup triumph came in the year 1992 under the captaincy of Imran Khan.
“The other part of my dream is to win the best bowler of the tournament at a World Cup and I hope that I can fulfill that dream in 2019,” he said.
