Ali Ahmed March 7, 2019

The ongoing fourth edition of Pakistan Super League (PSL) has seen a fresh array of fast bowlers with the likes of Haris Rauf, Mohammad Hasnain, Mohamamd Musa, and Mohammad Ilyas making the head turn with their bowling ability.

However, the tournament has not enjoyed similar luck in unearthing young batting guns, which has a lot to do with the batsmen not being patient enough believe Pakistan’s batting legend Younis Khan.

“I think young batsmen need to be patient rather as they believe that it is a T20 than they should just opt to play with aggressively and that is not the case,” said Khan, who is currently part of the Peshawar Zalmi franchise.

Khan further said that youngsters should look up to the examples of Kamran Akmal and Shane Watson, on how to pace their inning, when to score and when take time. “It is very important for young batsmen that they should not only practice on hitting boundaries, but should also practice in facing 40-50 deliveries. If they do so I believe a lot of batting talent can come,” said Khan.
