‘Pakistan doesn’t contain strong pacers for Australia tour’ Shahid Afridi


Pakistan’s former flamboyant all-rounder Shahid Khan Afridi thinks that Pakistan team’s pace bowling is not competitive enough to compete against Australia at their home ground.

“Our team has taken some very young pacers in Australia. I think these bowlers can’t get rid of Australian batsmen especially at their home conditions,” Afridi opined while talking to the media.

The former cricketer said that the team management would have picked a couple experienced bowlers especially with strong pace for Australia’s tour. “I will only talk about what I think and in my opinion pace works in Australia and Pakistan’s team management would have added a couple bowlers with good pace for this tough tour,” he said.

It is pertinent to mention here that the green shirts are in Australia where they will play three T20Is and two Tests against the Aussies. Azhar Ali will captain the Test team while young Babar Azam will lead the team in shorter format. Team’s head coach and chief selector announced the squad consists mostly young faces.
