Young batsman Haider Ali on Saturday revealed that he changed his hotel training time in New Zealand for left-arm pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi.
While talking to media through online medium from Queenstown, the batsman said, Shaheen could not sleep due to his early morning training. “I had to change my training time in the room because fast bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi could not sleep at night,” he said.

Haider said that he did not realize that Shaheen was disturbed by his training sessions as the bowler was staying in the room below his. “I did not know that Shaheen’s room was in the room below mine. When I talked to him I found out that he could not sleep because of my training so then I changed my training time,” the batsman said.
Pakistan will play New Zealand for three-T20Is from December 18 to December 22 and two Tests from December 26 to January 7.
