Shahid Afridi Advocates for Supportive Guidance for Haris Rauf's Bowling Recovery:

News by “Sana Ullah”

Former captain Shahid Afridi has shared insights regarding Lahore Qalandar’s fast bowler Haris Rauf, who is currently grappling with a loss of form during the ongoing Pakistan Super League (PSL) season 9.

Lahore Qalandars have faced defeat in both of their matches in PSL 9, with Rauf delivering subpar performances in both encounters.

In the opening match against Islamabad United, the pace bowler conceded 38 runs without securing a wicket in three overs.

In the subsequent match against Quetta Gladiators, he managed to claim one wicket but leaked 47 runs in his four overs.

Shahid Afridi believes that Rauf requires appropriate mentorship to rediscover his bowling prowess.

“At present, Haris Rauf appears to be encountering difficulties with his bowling, and it’s a bit perplexing,” Afridi stated during an interview with a local news channel.

“He requires sincere assistance at this juncture; the guidance of experienced players is essential because we shouldn’t abandon him altogether,” he emphasized.

The former all-rounder recognized Rauf’s potential and recommended that the young fast bowler engage in four-day cricket to refine his skills.

“He has showcased some remarkable performances for Pakistan. His development as a bowler will accelerate when he participates in longer-format cricket,” Afridi remarked.

“Through his involvement in four-day cricket, his bowling capabilities will naturally enhance. However, currently, he needs our encouragement and backing,” Shahid Afridi concluded.

Lahore Qalandars are scheduled to confront Multan Sultans at Multan Cricket Stadium in their upcoming match.
