Former Pakistan cricketer, Ramiz Raja, believes Peshawar Zalmi’s batsmen, Saim Ayub and Mohammad Haris, will be the opening duo of Pakistan’s T20I side in future.
While speaking on his YouTube channel, Raja praised the aforementioned duo but also said that they should have finished the game for Zalmi.
“Saim Ayub and Mohammad Haris have immense potential and are future openers of Pakistan in T20I cricket,” said Raja.
“However, after getting a start and setting the tempo, they should have finished the match. Not finishing the game is a waste of their talent and potential,” he added.
Haris gave an ideal start to Zalmi, but they failed to capitalise on it and lost the game by 56 runs. Haris scored 40 from 23 balls, while Saim perished after scoring his highest PSL score of 53.
Former cricketer also emphasised the need to promote younger players through HBL PSL.
“I strongly believe Pakistan Super League should not be meant for players, who are close to 40 years in age. We put the careers of young cricketers and future stars on stake just because of friendships,” he said.
