Over the last one year or so, Pakistan cricket has grown from strength to strength with the appointment of wicketkeeper-batsman Sarfraz Ahmed as the skipper of the side. One of the vital cogs of their limited overs team is fast bowler Hasan Ali.

Hasan has starred as Pakistan defied all odds in England to defeat arch-rivals India in the finals of the competition to pick up their first Champions Trophy victory. The right-arm seam bowler has gone on to become the No.1 bowler in the One-Day International format.

The No.1 ODI bowler has been just one of the players who has made a difference to the Pakistan line-up. Any player, who has stepped into the team has played well, be it with the bat or the ball. The selection of Imam-ul-Haq paid dividends as the left-handed batsman scored a hundred on debut against Sri Lanka.

Usman Shinwari, who came into the playing XI, bowled his heart out and impressed Ali from the other end. “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’s a treat to watch him perform and great to be a part of such an experience,” the 23-year-old added.

While there exists a good group of players for Pakistan, there has not existed jealousy or rivalry. The team, playing as a unit has pulled in the same direction and has helped the side evolve every passing game.

“In addition, there is a good combination of senior and junior players with the seniors really supporting and helping the younger guys. If you have a good team ethic and the support network is there then you will always be successful,” concluded the pacer, who believes in the side.
