Mickey Arthur wants Asif Ali's promotion in batting order.
LAHORE (Online) - Former Pakistan Head Coach Mickey Arthur has urged Pakistan team’s management to promote hard hitting batsman Asif Ali to the top of batting order.
Asif Ali’s gigantic sixes two sixes on final three balls during the fourth T20I against England merely created the difference between the two teams, and Pakistan clinched victory at the end by just 3 runs.
As the match concluded, there was a heated debate over Asif Ali’s batting number in the lineup as many wanted him to face more deliveries, and Mickey Arthur was no exception.
"Some great death bowling from Haris Rauf but Asif Ali the difference, he has to face more balls!," wrote Arthur on Twitter.
Asif Ali had performed brilliantly at the previous men’s T20I World Cup in United Arab Emirates (UAE) where he had finished the games single handedly.
