Bishop hails Haider’s talent

Karachi: Former West Indies fast bowler Ian Bishop has praised Pakistan U19 vice-captain Haider Ali and is one of the three picks from the ICC U19 World Cup 2020 in South Africa.
The renowned commentator in a podcast of ESPN Cricinfo along with former Australian Tom Moody picked their respective three players that are close to representing their senior teams.
The 19-year-old Haider caught the attention of Bishop during the quarter-final against Afghanistan and reminded him of Pakistan T20I skipper Babar Azam.
β€œHe played some cover drives against Afghanistan that reminded me of Babar Azam, simply because of the balance in his shots. He seems to have a good temperament as well, and unfortunately, he got run-out,” he said. – Agencies
