Pakistani cricket fans were not happy with the inclusion of Pakistan fast bowler Harris Rauf in the national T20 squad and were calling him a run-scoring machine.
The opinion of Pakistani fans seemed correct when Haris Rauf scored 32 runs in 4 overs against West Indies in the World T20 warm-up match and 33 runs in 3 overs against South Africa.
After the warm-up matches, cricket fans were criticizing Harris Rauf, but in the first match against India in the Super 12 stage and today in the second match against New Zealand, Harris proved his choice right by bowling brilliantly.
Against India, Haris Rauf gave away 25 runs in 4 overs and took the important wicket of Hardik Pandya. Also, the last over of the innings was well done. In today’s match against New Zealand, Haris Rauf also bowled brilliantly and showed the way to the pavilion to 4 players.
Harris Rauf gave only 22 runs for 4 wickets and took 4 wickets. After this performance, Pakistani fans also realized their mistake and on social media they were seen apologizing to Haris Rauf.
Pakistan defeated New Zealand by 5 wickets to take the top position in their group after a nerve-wracking contest. Harris Rauf was declared the best player of the match. In the match played in Sharjah, Pakistan captain Babar Azam decided to bowl after winning the toss against New Zealand while no change was made in the national team.
