Former Indian Star cricket VVS Laxman feels that Shoaib Malik is the trump card for the Pakistan team match against India which will be played on 19th September in asia cup 2018 Tournament.
Malik is one of the most experience players in Pakistan side for Asia cup and their experience surely help a lot to team.
“Yeah, the reason he does well against India is his experience, he is a good player of spin bowling because in the middle invariably India will look to attack with the spinners and they’ve got two quality risk spinners now in, Chahal and Kuldeep while Pakistan is evidently dependent on their opener Fakhar Zaman and Babar Azam at number 3,” Laxman was quoted as saying by Star Sports.
If pakistan to perform well in Asia cup then Malik batting role surely be a key for the side.
“Shoaib Malik is someone who would look to play the anchor role because he has got the ability to rotate the strike, play down the ground, taking easy singles,” he said.
“But at the same time when he presses the accelerator, he can play the big shots and he has got an abundance of experience and he is a champion as far as the wide ball is concerned,” he added.
