Hasan Ali revealed shocking news about Usman Khawaja.
Khawaja leaked out the tactics of Pakistani team in 2022.
National teams have stopped discussing strategies in Urdu.
Regarding Australia’s left-handed opener, Usman Khawaja, Pakistan’s fast bowler Hasan Ali revealed something startling while thinking back to the Australian team’s December 2022 Test tour.
During the 2022 Test visit, Khawaja—who was born in Islamabad and speaks Urdu—tipped off the Australians about the tactics and plans of the Pakistani side.
As a precaution, Hasan disclosed, the Green Shirts have ceased talking about their ambitions in front of the 36-year-old.
“Usman bhai is familiar with Urdu,” Hasan stated, “but after he leaked our strategies to the Australia cricket team in Karachi, we’ve become more cautious. We’ll ensure not to discuss plans in Urdu in front of him to keep our strategies confidential. We’ll move a bit farther away from him to strategize for the game,” Hasan said in an interview with Cricket Australia (CA).
The Champions Trophy 2017 victor continued her speech by talking about how South Asian teams struggle to take wickets in Australia’s harsh conditions.
“It’s not just Pakistan; all South Asian teams find it challenging to take 20 wickets on Australian tours. The pitches in Australia differ from those in other cricketing nations, and the local players’ familiarity with their conditions often poses problems for visiting squads,” he added.
After praising Australian captain Pat Cummins, who led his side to the World Cup and World Test Championship lately, Hasan continued by claiming that Cummins is the best bowler in the game right now.
“Pat Cummins stands out as the best bowler. His excellence in all three formats is commendable. Both Shaheen Afridi from Pakistan and Pat Cummins from Australia are skillful bowlers who understand the art of bowling with new and semi-new balls.
“Australian cricket fans love watching cricket and have been supportive of Pakistan. The recent ICC Men’s T20 World Cup held in Australia saw tremendous support for Pakistan, except for the India game.
“I believe fans will turn out to watch cricketing greats like Steve Smith, David Warner, Shaheen Afridi, and Babar Azam and support the spirit of good cricket,” he concluded.
