Hasan Ali has been a revelation in the Pakistan bowling lineup. The right-arm pacer has taken wickets at an atrocious pace in the limited-overs format. Hailing from Punjab, the 24-year-old was also the man of the tournament in Pakistan’s successful Champions Trophy campaign last year. His inclusion in the team has changed the dynamics and the team is able to pick wickets in the middle overs as well.
He is currently playing in ongoing Asia Cup and has fared decently so far. While his bowling exploits were brilliant against Hong Kong as the Men in Green rolled them over for just 116 before chasing it down comfortably later in the evening. However, Hasan Ali had a bad day at the office against the arch-rivals and was punished by the Indian openers for bowling short during his four-over spell and eventually ended up with figures of 0/33.
He will be hoping to make amends for his performance in their second clash which is on Sunday and is of more importance compared to the previous one.
Hasan likes rap music
In a candid show with Cricbuzz, Pakistani journalist Zainab Abbas revealed a lot about Hasan Ali. The world number three bowler in the ODI format has a liking for rap music. He also loves to try to rap when he’s not troubling the batsmen on the field while also being a fan of the music produced across the border. The fast bowler is a huge fan of the Bollywood singer Yo-Yo Honey Singh who is a professional rapper as well.
Meanwhile, the pacer is also best friends with spinner Shadab Khan and Faheem Ashraf. The whole segment was quite interesting as it showed how the Pakistani players maintained themselves off the field. It was also revealed that Shadab, who is one of the best leg-spinners in the country currently, loves having ice-cream more often than not.
