Inconsistent Abdul Shakoor Shakoor

In the opening match of the season, Abdul Shakoor Bangash played a brilliant innings of 73 from just 28 balls. However, in the next two innings, he has batted totally opposite to what he showed in the opening game.

Notably, Abdul Shakoor Bangash seemed struggling leg-spinners in matches 5 and 7 as his strike rate against them was 75 in those two games. Due to his poor batting in the last two games, Shakoor’s overall strike rate has dropped to 178.33, which is certainly not good enough in T10.

This is also the lowest strike rate by a Maratha Arabians batsman in a season with 100+ runs.

Sohail Tanvir must step up
