Hasan Ali: Management changes ‘shouldn’t have happened’ before T20 World Cup


Pakistan fast bowler also said he expected low-scoring games in the UAE

Hasan Ali has said a change in management ahead of the T20 World Cup wasn’t ideal, though he is looking forward to working with new bowling consultant Vernon Philander. In the first public comments by a current player since the removal of Pakistan’s last coaching team of Misbah-ul-Haq and bowling coach Waqar Younis, Hasan praised Waqar and “all the work I have done with him”.

“[Philander] hasn’t played much T20 cricket but no doubt he was a great bowler and brought in a lot of success for his South Africa,” Hasan told the media in a virtual session from Lahore. “He knows about bowling and I hope the work we do with him will be helpful for us. As far as Viki [Waqar] bhai is concerned, I’ve said before it shouldn’t happen that management changes before such a mega event but obviously, it’s not in our hands. I admire Waqar Younis and all the work I have done with him. I really enjoyed my time with him but unfortunately he isn’t here and we have to move on. We will move on and try to give our best.”
