Former Pakistani bowler Wasim Akram says that Haris Rauf needs to get better at bowling if he wants to be successful.
Pakistan will play Australia in their next World Cup match on October 20 after defeat to India in their last match.
Chasing a target of 192, India were way clinical with the bat and spearheaded by Rohit Sharma, who treated the Pakistan bowlers with the utter contempt.
He whacked six boundaries and six sixes in his fiery knock.
India swept past against Pakistan comfortably by seven wickets, with 117 balls remaining. Shreyas Iyer (53) scored the winning runs for his side and notched up his fifty in style.
KL Rahul remained unconquered on 29-ball 19, lacing with two boundaries.
Shaheen Shah Afridi had removed Rohit Sharma after the latter smashed blistering 63-ball 86, but provided India a great chance of bagging a big victory against the Babar Azam-inspired Pakistan.
Rohit Sharma continued to treat the Pakistan bowlers with utter contempt and raised his bat to the gallery after notching up another half-century against Pakistan after Virat Kohli’s (16) was removed by Hasan Ali.
Shubman Gill who started off the proceedings for India with the bat with great intent before he was removed by Shaheen Shah Afridi on 16.
There is nothing to talk about the Pakistan bowling. Shaheen Shah Afridi (2-36), who struggled to bowl with consistency and went for runs, but made a good comeback to bag the wickets of Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill. But it was too late to pull back for his side.
Hasan Ali (1-34) picked up a wicket.
Mohammad Nawaz (0-47), Haris Rauf (0-43) and Shadab Khan (0-31) failed to grab any wicket.
Wasim Akram says that Haris Rauf cannot only rely on bowling fast to get wickets.
He needs to be more clever and make the batters make mistakes.
Sultan of Swing also believes that Haris Rauf needs to bowl with more consistency and innovation.
He thinks that Rauf will only pick wickets when batters go after him.
He has never seen Rauf swing the ball and pick wickets like Jasprit Bumrah did in the match against India. Rauf has pace but he needs to improve his length for one-day cricket, Wasim said.
However, former Pakistan captain is happy with the way Shaheen Afridi has bowled in the World Cup so far.
He said that Shaheen Afridi has been unlucky because he had a serious injury last year. But, he is pleased with bowling against India when he took two important wickets.
