KARACHI: Fast bowler Haris Rauf, who was Pakistan’s game-changer in the fourth Twenty20 international against England, claimed that he had promised himself before bowling the penultimate over that he wouldn’t quit before the final ball is bowled.
When Haris Rauf arrived to bowl the 19th over, England just needed 9 from a possible 12. Liam Dawson, who had scored 24 off the previous over by Hasnain, was the target of his bowling. With all eyes on Haris, the pressure was on.
In the 19th over, Haris Rauf produced a dot ball, which was followed by a boundary by Dawson as the Englishman discovered the opening toward the square. The UK needs 5 out of 10.Haris made two out of two. He first bowled Olly Stone with the first ball he faced after having substitute fielder Mohammad Haris catch Dawson at midwicket.
The game was won by Pakistan by three runs.
Haris declared in the “Game Changer” segment that he didn’t want to give up until it was finished after producing one of the best death overs in recent memory. I was determined to fight until the very last ball, it was all I had on my mind, he stated.
On NSK’s wicket, Pakistani bowlers had to restrict a total of 166 runs. Haris said that the only plan was to give everything we had. The bowler who won the PSL team Lahore Qalandars’ talent hunt program remarked, “Results can go to any side, but we aspired to give our 100%, we didn’t want to fall short of our efforts, we tried our best and earned the success.”The Pakistani pacer said that Tait had given him advice on how to utilize pace and bowl yorkers.
