    Does Asif Ali's method of hitting the ball remind you of Abdul Razzaq?

    Razzaq used to come in the last 10 overs and take Pakistan to a good total with some clean hits. He did not score many 100s for obvious reasons but he played several crucial 40s and 50s when the team needed acceleration.

    Asif Ali seems to be doing the same job. There is something in his personality too that strongly resembles Razzaq. Does he remind you of Abdul Razzaq too?

    Don’t know about personality but that pull shot and the manner in which he swings his bat remind me of Razzaq.

    Asif is a genuine batsman, Razzaq was a tulle-bazz but an effective one, at times.

    Afridi is a tulle baz, not Abdul Razzaq. Razzaq could bat according to the demands of the team and match situation

    No Asif bats at number 6, while Razzaq batted at 7 or 8.


    We need to have more expectations from our number 6 batsman and should expect him to consistently play long innings. This is Misbah era mentality that we shall bat for 4 rpo for 40 overs and then 10 rpo for the last 10.

    Razzaq had a high backlift and liked to move his front leg out of the way. He had hard hands and preferred to hit through the line. Asif has a low backlift and softer hands and probably has a bigger range of shots.

    One thing is for sure though - both wonderful to watch when in full flow.

    Not really Razzaq had only two gears He could either hit away or block away and score a 59 ball 3

    One more thing common about them is that both are brutal vs pacers but below average vs spin in razzaq case hopeless,,, which is very uncommon for a Pakistani player who's bread and butter is bashing spinners.

    Razzak was a much more consistent hitter than Afridi.

    Asif has a long way to go before we can make comparisons. Let him settle in and become an established part of Pak team first.

    Signs are there but then we have seen a few false dawns.

    He isn't a hitter, he is a proper batsman who can hit huge

    Both are completely different batsmen. Asif Ali doesn't seem to resemble anyone else that I know of but he's doing his job well as a batsman who can inflate our total.

    Do you guys know that before the PSL Asif was a genuine opener? He scored a 100 on debut as an opener in a T20 in 2010. He has opened the batting for Faisalabad for almost 8 years.

    Which shows you that he is a proper batsman who could develop into a decent middle order bat for Pakistan. Razzaq was only used for his six hitting ability and nothing else.

    Razzaq also used to bat up the order earlier on in his career at times.

    I see more similarities between Fakhar Zaman and Razzaq.

    That was usually an experiment.

    But in his earlier years (especially domestic) Razzaq was always used as a fast bowler who could bat a bit.

    Doesn't remind me of anyone, but adds much needed power hitting ability to a previously one dimensional batting lineup heavily reliant on Fakhar Zaman for fast paced knocks.

    I'd like to see him open in T20s - there's zero point in saving one of your best powerhitters down the order given there's only 120 balls in an innings.
