PAK vs AUS: After a long wait of 24 years, the Australian team, which arrived on the tour of Pakistan, has included a special player in its coaching staff to surround Pakistan in their home. In fact, before reaching Pakistan, a big problem had arisen for the Australian team when the team’s spin bowling advisor Sridharan Sriram could not go to Pakistan due to the non-availability of a visa. However, Cricket Australia has made up for this and appointed Pakistani-origin Australian spin bowler Fawad Ahmed as its bowling consultant for this series.
Fawad Ahmed to be Australia’s spin bowling consultant for Pakistan tour
Fawad Ahmed could not play many matches for Australia in international cricket, but in domestic cricket, he made a lot of noise with his bowling. He has played a total of three ODIs and two T20 Internationals for Australia. However, his stellar performance in first-class cricket has been quite spectacular. During this, he has taken 205 wickets at an impressive average of 31. Ahmed’s role on this tour is also going to be important because Australia has included three spin bowlers Nathan Lyon, Ashton Agar, and Mitchell Swepson in their 18-man squad.
Know this condition much better
Australia’s biggest move behind the appointment of Fawad Ahmed as bowling consultant is that he was currently present in Pakistan and was part of the Lahore Qalandars team captained by Shaheen Afridi, who became champion for the first time in the Pakistan Super League. Due to this, he is well aware of the situation here now.
In the Pakistan Super League, they have seen that, which length would be better to bowl in this condition. He will do the same, in such a situation, Fawad can act as a threat to the kangaroos.
