Malik Pakistan’s trump card vs India at Asia Cup, feels Laxman
New Delhi, Sep 12: Former India star V.V.S. Laxman feels that Pakistan batsman Shoaib Malik will perform well against India during the upcoming Asia Cup cricket tournament.
“Yeah, the reason he does well against India is his experience, he is a good player of spin bowling because in the middle invariably India will look to attack with the spinners and they’ve got two quality risk spinners now in, Chahal and Kuldeep while Pakistan is evidently dependent on their opener Fakhar Zaman and Babar Azam at number 3,” Laxman was quoted as saying by Star Sports.
Laxman also asserted that Malik will need to play a major role with the bat if Pakistan is to do well in the tournament.
“Shoaib Malik is someone who would look to play the anchor role because he has got the ability to rotate the strike, play down the ground, taking easy singles,” he said.
“But at the same time when he presses the accelerator, he can play the big shots and he has got an abundance of experience and he is a champion as far as the wide ball is concerned,” he added.
