KARACHI: Former fast bowler Muhammad Asif has accused Pakistani pacers of hiding their real age.
In an interview on Kamran Akmal’s YouTube channel, Mohammad Asif said that the age of the players is very high, they are 17, 18 years old on birth certificates but in reality they are 27, 28 years old. Not flexible, they don’t even know how to bend the body, after a while the body starts to stiffen, after a spell of 5, 6 overs, they don’t stand in the field.
He said that it has been 5, 6 years since any fast bowler of Pakistan took 10 wickets in a match. The present pacers have no knowledge nor do they know the skill of forcing the batsmen to play on the front foot. There is no control.
