The excitement among supporters is building as we get closer to the 2018 Asia Cup, which will take place soon. While Afghanistan and Sri Lanka will square off in the tournament’s opening game on Saturday, all eyes will be on the intense showdown between India and Pakistan on Sunday.
Star batsman Virat Kohli, who was rested for the tours of the West Indies and Zimbabwe, will make his comeback in the heavyweight match. Babar Azam, the skipper of Pakistan, will also be in the spotlight because of his outstanding batting performance in all formats.
Before the Asia Cup, Pakistani journalist Sawera Pasha and Afghanistan talisman Rashid Khan interacted on her YouTube channel, where he responded to a number of queries.
Rashid commented during the conversation that it is challenging to bowl to both Virat and Babar since neither batter spares any sloppy deliveries.
“For me, both (Virat and Babar) are equally tough to bowl. The type of batters they are, they won’t spare a lose delivery. So, for me, both are tough to bowl to, but I enjoy the challenge. There is no chance that I will bowl a loose ball to both of them. I will focus on bowling in the right areas but both are tough to bowl at,”Rashid said
Rashid added that he has improved his game over the years by bowling to batting like Virat, Babar, and Kane Williamson.

“Bowling to Babar and Virat is fun and it has also been a great learning curve for me. For Example, when I used to bowl to Kane Williamson at SRH, we had a lot of chat afterwards about my bowling. So, his output helped me a lot. I also had discussions with Virat in the IPL, and the same goes with Babar too,”he added
