India and Pakistan will meet on Sunday (28 August) in the Asia Cup. Before that, both teams are busy finalizing their preparations.
Pakistan's new match finisher Asif Ali is preparing for this match in a special way. He is known for hitting long sixes like Shahid Afridi. Asif told that he is hitting 100-150 sixes in the nets.
Asif bats fast in the death overs (16 to 20 overs). The Pakistani team was looking for a match finisher for a long time.
Asif has filled that gap. He can take advantage of the absence of India's two death specialist bowlers Jasprit Bumrah and Harshal Patel.
Asif said, “I try to hit 100 to 150 sixes a day in practice so that I can hit at least three to five sixes in a match. The moment I come out to bat, I need to score quick runs. Sometimes it is 12 to 14 runs per over. There is a lot of pressure on that. We are preparing ourselves for such situations.
