Mohd. Rizwan and Hasan Ali once again performed brilliantly during Pakistan’s third and last T20 against South Africa that saw the green shirts win the game and clinch the series 2-1. So, here is a look at a few takeaways from South Africa’s tour to Pakistan that concluded yesterday.
Mohd. Rizwan & Hasan Ali Steal The Show
Wicket-keeper batsman Mohd. Rizwan and comeback boy Hasan Ali performed exceptionally well throughout the home season to allow Pakistan comprehensive Test and T20 series victories. At the end of South Africa’s tour then Rizwan has omitted all doubts with regard to Pakistan’s number one wicket-keeper batsman across formats while Hasan has reclaimed his position in the playing XIs as Pakistan’s leading pacer.
Plenty Of Positives
The form of comeback boys i.e. Hasan Ali and Mohd. Nawaz as well as that of new comers Nauman Ali and Zahid Mehmood should give a lot of confidence to the support staff with regard to Pakistan’s bench strength. Also, the emergence of Fawad Alam and Usman Qadir as dependable options in Test and limited overs cricket respectively, should now allow the green shirts better option for some important encounters that are scheduled later in the year.
South Africa’s Landmark Tour Allow Another Life To Misbah & Waqar
South Africa toured Pakistan for the first time in nearly 14 years and so, the landmark tour should hopefully, now make way for countries like England, Australia and New Zealand to come to Pakistan without much hesitation.
