Eager to establish myself as an all-rounder: Hasan Ali

LAHORE   –  Pakistan pace bowler Hasan Ali Monday said that he wanted to become an all-rounder in all three formats and doing hard yards in the nets for the purpose. 

Speaking to pcb.com.pk, Hasan said: “I want to see myself as an all-rounder in all three format and I am putting in extra yards in the nets. I am inspired by Wasim Akram, Abdul Razzaq and Azhar Mahmood and want to contribute in crucial times for my team. “I usually get to bat in death overs in T20Is and the only option I have at that point is to hit the ball hard. I am working to improve my power-hitting in the practice sessions and learning to how to score more and more runs against Yorkers, bouncers and slower deliveries.”

Hasan arrived in the Caribbean after impressive outings with the ball in England. He became the eighth Pakistan bowler to immortalise himself by making to the prestigious Lord’s honours’ board. He took five for 51 in the second ODI before bowling an impressive spell, in which he gave only 28 runs, in the last T20I. 

“T20 cricket is all about variations and a good bowler should have command on bowling different variations. I have been practicing different deliveries in the nets and am very keen to do better in the upcoming series against the West Indies. “I believe in giving everything for the team once I step in the field – whether it is by taking a wicket or hitting the ball out of the park,” he asserted.
