Thanks to a brilliant bowling effort from the left arm spinner Nawaz and a maiden hundred from Babar Azam, Pakistan won the first ODI against West Indies. If Babar was pretty amazing with the bat, Nawaz was equally great with the ball.
Nawaz did not get the man of the match but his performance appeal to a lot of cricket fans. He really bowled well last night. The West Indies had no clue while playing his off spinners. The sharp turn he produced give him three wickets.
Bravo, Pollard, and Brathwaite all fell to the ball which spun sharply and did not let them get behind it properly. The way Nawaz bowled showed that he is taking his cricket very seriously. Pakistan is likely to find the perfect replacement for Azhar Mahmood and Abdul Razzaq.Imad Wasim and Mohammad Nawaz can be the ideal pair here to fit in the places of Azhar and Razzaq. Since these two left Pakistan did not find a good solid all-rounder till now. These two spinners are walking the right path.
Nawaz is highly regarded by the Pakistan wicketkeeper and t20 captain Sarfraz Ahmed. The two plays for the same PSL team. They have a good understanding as well. Sarfraz last night was seen kissing the forehead of Nawaz when he finished his spell.
Sarfraz ran to Nawaz backed him up and kissed the forehead of his bowler. Now this is something we have not seen in Pakistani team for a while. They are a good side but this latest transformation is pretty pleasant in this unit. They are doing all the right things. They have a strong batting and bowling combination now. They now can take on any side in the world, especially in the T20 format.
