Mohammad Yousaf, the former batting coach of the Pakistan cricket team, recently spoke about his experience of working with young batter Haider Ali.

While speaking to a local cricket website, Yousaf said that his interaction with Haider was limited as he only worked with him for a year as the team’s batting coach. He stated that he had not worked with Haider in any academies or similar settings, but whenever he met him, he gave him several tips that he tried to adapt and learn.

Despite Yousaf’s efforts, Haider’s performance in international matches was lackluster. He played 33 T20Is and two ODIs for Pakistan but only managed to average 18 with a strike rate of 126.32. Due to his poor performance, he was ultimately dropped from the team.

Yousaf also revealed that he believes Haider is often distracted on the field and not mentally present in the moment. He emphasized the importance of being in the present moment and leaving the past and future aside, which is essential for all players of any format.

In the Pakistan Super League (PSL) season 8, Haider played for Karachi Kings, but his performance was not up to par. He only scored 109 runs in six matches, and his poor performance continued during the T20 World Cup 2022, where he played his last international match against Zimbabwe.

Haider Ali’s career has been tumultuous so far, and it remains to be seen if he can overcome his shortcomings and bounce back to become a successful player in the future.
