‘Would love to dismiss big players like Kohli, Buttler’ Usman Qadir


Karachi: Pakistan’s leg-spinner Usman Qadir has set his eyes on dismissing world-class batters, including Virat Kohli, Eoin Morgan and Jos Buttler.

The 27-year-old Usman, son of legendary leg-spinner Late Abdul Qadir, opined that bowling to top-quality batters increases the confidence of a bowler.

“There are so many world-class players like Morgan, Jos Buttler, Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers. When you pick up the wickets of such batsmen, your confidence goes to the next level and it also gives you experience. So I would really want to bowl to these batsmen and dismiss them,” Usman Qadir told Cricket Pakistan.

On the other hand, Usman was in awe of captain Babar Azam, who has the ability to put pressure on the opposition by keeping the scoreboard ticking.

“In the 3-4 games that I have played in the PSL, I realized that it is difficult to bowl to Babar. He has the capability to hit boundaries at will and is always keen to take singles and rotate strikes. He even puts away good deliveries for boundaries,” Usman Qasir added.

It must be noted that Usman is currently in Abu Dhabi and he will be representing Multan Sultans in PSL 6 remainder.
