  • Haris Rauf boasts nine wickets in three matches with a remarkable average of 10.33 and an economy rate of 4.65.
  • Naseem Shah shines with the best economy rate, claiming seven wickets at an average of 12.42 and an economy of 4.46.

Bowling Excellence

In their recent match against Bangladesh, the Pakistani bowlers continued their outstanding performance, restricting Bangladesh to a mere 193 runs. Haris Rauf led the charge with an exceptional spell, taking four wickets for just 19 runs in six overs. Naseem Shah contributed with three wickets, while Shaheen Afridi secured one wicket.

History-Making Moments

The trio’s impact has been evident throughout the tournament. In their opening match against Nepal, they collectively bagged five wickets, propelling Pakistan to a massive 238-run victory.

In a historic showdown against arch-rivals India, the Pakistani pacers achieved a significant milestone by taking all 10 wickets. Afridi’s memorable spell dismantled India’s top-order, dismissing Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli. Naseem Shah troubled India’s opener, Shubman Gill, and Rauf also made crucial breakthroughs.
