Barbados: Pacer Hasan Ali has set an aim for himself as he wants to recognize himself as an all-rounder in all formats.
The 27-year-old Hasan has shown great hitting abilities since his comeback in international cricket and he wants to continue doing it by taking inspirations from Pakistani greats.
“I want to see myself as an all-rounder in all three format and I am putting in extra yards in the nets. I am inspired by Wasim Akram, Abdul Razzaq and Azhar Mahmood and want to contribute in crucial times for my team,” he told pcb.com.pk.
“I usually get to bat in death overs in T20Is and the only option I have at that point is to hit the ball hard. I am working to improve my power-hitting in the practice sessions and learning to how to score more and more runs against Yorkers, bouncers and slower deliveries,” he added.
On the othet hand, Hasan is looking forward to execute different plans in bowling. “T20 cricket is all about variations and a good bowler should have command on bowling different variations. I have been practicing different deliveries in the nets and am very keen to do better in the upcoming series against the West Indies.”
“I believe in giving everything for the team once I step in the field – whether it is by taking a wicket or hitting the ball out of the park,” he concluded.
It must be noted that Pakistan is in West Indies for four-match T20I series and two Tests.
