Virender Sehwag, who used to play for India, thinks that Mohammad Haris could break the partnership between Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan when they bat first in T20Is.
Haris will have to move down the list to make room for one of them. On Thursday, November 3, Haris hit three sixes and two fours off of 11 balls in a match against South Africa in the ICC T20 World Cup. He scored 28 runs.
After Rizwan was out, Haris, who was 21 at the time, attacked the bowlers and helped Pakistan get to 42 runs in the powerplay. The chaos at the SCG stopped when fast bowler Anrich Nortje got rid of him.
Haris, who replaced Fakhar Zaman in the 15-person squad, couldn’t keep going, but Sehwag thinks it was him who gave Pakistan’s innings momentum.
The future looks good for Mohammed Haris. He raced against South African pacers in Australia. He got 28, but that wasn’t less than a 60.
Sehwag told Cricbuzz
“If he keeps playing like this, it could end Rizwan and Babar’s time at the top and force one of them to move down the order.”
With 50s from Iftikhar Ahmed and Shadab Khan, the Men in Green got to 185. By 33 runs, Pakistan beat South Africa
