ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: Fast bowler Hasan Ali has said that there is no issue of jealousy or rivalry in Pakistan Cricket Team.
“It is a great unit with all pulling in the same direction and enjoying each other’s successes. In addition, there is a good combination of senior and junior players with the seniors really supporting and helping the younger guys,” Hasan Ali was quoted by skysports.com as saying.
The 23-year-old Hasan Ali said that he likes it when the Captain Sarfraz Ahmed shouts at him as that motivates him and the players.
“Sarfraz’s shouting isn’t really him getting angry at us, it’s actually his way of reminding us that we need to keep our focus, not lose concentration and make sure that we are on our game,” he said.
While speaking about Pakistan doing good in the limited-overs cricket, Hasan said that Usman Khan Shinwari came into the team recently and did well.
“It was almost like I was bowling and taking those wickets that Usman was,” he said.
Hasan Ali said that look at the way the youngster Shadab Khan has come into the team and shown he is capable of winning matches in any facet of the game.
“It is a treat to watch him perform and great to be a part of such an experience,” Hasan Ali said.
“Faheem Ashraf and Fakhar Zaman are two other new players who have come in and settled into international cricket so well. Imam-ul-Haq recently made a hundred on debut and there are so many other performances to enjoy as well,” he said.
While talking about the 2019 World Cup, Hasan said that i dreamt of winning a World Cup final and that is still my dream despite winning the ICC Champions Trophy 2017.
