“When I was a net bowler for the Indian team and was bowling to Virat Kohli, I felt like he knew exactly where the ball was going to hit his bat. He was very focussed and that showed how sharp his concentration was,”. He said in ESPNcricinfo’s documentary The Incredible rise of Haris Rauf.

“Even during practice sessions in the nets, it felt like I was playing a match against him, despite being a net bowler. His remarkable control and intensity made me realise why he has such a reputation in the game,”. The 29-year-old added.

Haris Rauf further said that

“I used to watch Dale Steyn and I liked the way he used to show aggression on the field after picking up a wicket. He inspired me to be aggressive on the field. That’s why he is my idol,” Rauf added.

However, in the warm up games ahead of the World Cup the pacer’s performance is not upto the mark. Furthermore, Nassem Shah’s injury is more of a pressure to him Afridi in the World Cup.
