Wasim Akram on Haris Rauf: He has pace but has to improve his length


Former ace pacer of Pakistan Wasim Akram criticizes current Pakistani pacer Haris Rauf. Haris Rauf was one of the most expensive bowlers against India, flushing out 43 runs in six overs.


Pakistan had their first upset in the World Cup, playing against their arch-rivals India. The Pakistan cricket team lost to India by seven wickets. The Narendra Modi Stadium on October 14 was all blue, supporting the men in blue, and they had the gala of the time. Moreover, in the span of two months, India defeated Pakistan twice. While India defeated Pakistan in the Asia Cup by a margin of 228 runs, In the World Cup 2023, India conquered Pakistan by seven wickets. Reacting to the embarrassing defeat against India, former pacer Wasim Akram blasted the pacer, Haris Rauf. While Criticizing Haris Rauf, Wasim Akram compared him to India’s ace pacer Jasprit Bumrah. In addition, he also said that Haris Rauf has the pace but has to improve his length for ODI cricket. while speaking to A Sports, Wasim Akram said that,

“Jasprit Bumrah is a clever bowler, one of the best in the world. When he was not getting any swing initially, he was hit for a couple of fours but restricted the flow of runs after that. Everything was finishing within the stumps and that was a slow ball to dismiss Rizwan. Any batter would have got out on the delivery that got Shadab Khan” he further added,

“There’s an attitude about a bowler. Talking about Haris Rauf, and nothing against him as he’s been Pakistan’s main bowler. I think that he will only pick wickets when batters go after him. I’ve never seen him swing the ball and pick wickets like Bumrah did today. He has pace but he has to improve his length for one-day cricket”
