Haris Rauf, the current frontline pacer of Pakistan’s national cricket team, has attributed his improved performance in white-ball cricket to national team skipper Babar Azam. In a recent interview with a local publication, Haris stated that Babar is the biggest reason behind his improvement, particularly in his death bowling, since the ICC T20 World Cup 2021.
All credits to Babar for Haris Rauf’s performance
Haris believes that the national team has played really good and exciting cricket in the last two years, emerging as a good unit, especially in white-ball cricket, and credits this to Babar Azam. He also praised Babar for trusting the abilities of players, which ultimately gave them the confidence to perform better.
Since 2021, Haris has become the frontline pacer in the Pakistan team, leading the team’s pace battery from the front in the absence of the country’s premium fast bowler during the T20 Asia Cup last year.
Haris also spoke about his bond with Shaheen Shah Afridi, who he referred to as a great support from the other end. According to Haris, the two pacers share an excellent bond and it helps him to keep enhancing his bowling skills.
Haris mentioned a time when Shaheen was not fit to play for Pakistan and he had to lead the bowling unit. It wasn’t easy, but Haris took the advantage and learned how to lead the unit effectively from Shaheen.
Currently, Shaheen and Haris are leading the pace battery of defending champions Lahore Qalandars in Pakistan Super League (PSL) season 8. The two pacers share a strong bond in Qalandars’ team who lifted their maiden PSL title last year under the captaincy of Shaheen.
