Karachi: Renowned commentator Alan Wilkins took to Twitter and revealed that late Australian legend Dean Jones said about the batting capabilities of Pakistan’s all-rounder Faheem Ashraf.
Faheem dispatched his fourth Test fifty on Day 2 of the second Test against South Africa in Rawalpindi. He remained unbeaten at 78 as Pakistan were bowled out for 272 in first innings.
“When our great friend Dean Jones was coach at Islamabad United, he always maintained that Faheem Ashraf was a “proper batsman” alongside Shadab Khan and Hussain Talat – it gave the team many batting permutations in the PSL,” Wilkins tweeted.
