Pakistani player claimed to hit 150 sixes in practice
In Asia Cup, this player scored only 41 runs in 6 matches.

New Delhi. Pakistan’s ambitions of winning the Asia Cup after 10 years could not be fulfilled. It was defeated by Sri Lanka by 23 runs in the final. The reason for Pakistan not winning the Asia Cup was its batting. The lack of consistency in batting took a toll on Pakistan. In this, a batsman was at the fore, who had made big claims when the Asia Cup started, he hits 150 sixes daily in the practice session. But, in the Asia Cup, he did not live up to this claim. Only 3 sixes have come out of Asif’s bat in 6 matches. For this reason, Pakistan’s middle order proved to be the weakest link of the team in the entire tournament. Asif was selected for the Asia Cup as a match finisher. But, he failed in this role.

Asif Ali has played 6 matches in Asia Cup-2022. In his 5 innings, he scored just 41 runs at an average of 8. During this, he played an innings of 16-16 runs against India and Pakistan. However, his strike rate was definitely 164. But, this batsman, who claimed to hit 150 sixes daily in practice, hit only 2 fours and 3 sixes. Asif could not score 50 runs in the entire tournament.

Asif got out for zero in the final

In the final of the Asia Cup against Sri Lanka, when Asif was expected to make a big innings, he could not even open the account. He was dismissed by Wanindu Hasaranga. He has played 45 T20s till now. But, not a single half-century has come off his bat. He has scored 476 runs at a strike rate of 136. 32 sixes have come off his bat. He has played 7 T20s so far this year. But, not more than 20 runs have been scored in a single match.

He has scored 30 or more runs in 45 matches only 3 times. Now the T20 World Cup is on its head. In such a situation, Pakistan’s trouble is bound to increase, because the role Asif is being given a chance in the team, he is not fulfilling it.
