Pakistani quick bowler Mohammad Asif has lashed out on the present Pakistani bowling assault, accusing them of mendacity about their ages in actual life.
In an interview to wicket-keeper batsman Kamran Akmal for his YouTube channel, the right-arm pacer stated that Pakistani bowlers didn’t reveal their true ages in official paperwork.
“They [current Pakistan bowlers] are so aged. It is written as 17-18 years on paper, but they are actually 27-28 years old. They don’t have the flexibility to bowl 20-25 overs. They don’t know how to bend the body and they become stiff after a while. They are not able to stand on the field after bowling a 5-6 over spell,” stated Mohammad Asif.
He lashed out on the Pakistani bowlers of at the moment, referring to them as ‘children’ who, in keeping with Asif, didn’t have any data on tips on how to bowl spells and use the pitch to their benefit.
“They don’t know how to keep the batsmen on the front foot, not give them a single and how to bowl on the wickets,” stated Asif, including that when Pakistani bowlers attempt to bowl on the wickets they find yourself bowling to the batsmen’s leg facet.
“They do not have the control,” he added.
Asif was criticising the Pakistani bowlers after New Zealand went right into a commanding place within the second Take a look at match at Christchurch. Pakistani bowlers have been unable to drag any surprises after a 215-run stand between Kane Williamson and Henry Nicholls on a bowler-friendly pitch.
In the course of the dialog, Asif recalled the golden period of Pakistan cricket when the inexperienced shirts’ tempo assault consisted of the legendary Imran Khan, Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis.
Earlier than he was embroiled within the controversial spot-fixing scandal with Mohammad Amir and Salman Butt, the right-arm medium quick bowler had shaped a lethal opening duo with former speedster Shoaib Akhtar.
Expressing disappointment on the Pakistani bowlers’ efficiency in New Zealand, Asif stated that he used to ‘salivate’ after seeing the pitches in New Zealand.
“There was no question of leaving the ball as a fast bowler. I never used to leave the ball before taking a five-wicket haul,” he stated.
