CricketFor an express bowler, you need pace,not easy to maintain same pace: Haris Rauf on comeback after injury


Srinagar: Pakistan pacer Haris Rauf has said that it is not easy for an expresd pacer to comeback with same pace after injury.

Haris Rauf suffered shoulder injury during the Pakistan Super League (PSL) season nine while representing Lahore Qalandars. He missed the five-match series at home against New Zealand followed by the games in Ireland.

He picked figures of 2/34 in second T20I against England and was instrumental in the middle overs.

“The family support remains throughout your career. Making a comeback is not easy but if one has deliver performances in the past, it is not difficult for the team to select again,” Haris said in a pre-match presser ahead of the third T20I in Cardiff.

“It’s hard for a player when he gets injured and comes back again for the game. It’s not easy because you are struggling a lot at that time. For an express bowler, you need pace so it’s not easy to maintain same pace and length after an injury. It’s hard for every player however belief in yourself makes the process easier,” he added.

There is a high chance of rain today in Cardiff for the 3rd T20I between Pakistan and England. According to The Weather Channel, there is a 92 percent chance of downpour on Tuesday.

England lead the series 1-0 after triumphing in the second T20I on Saturday by 23 runs.

The first match in Leeds was washed out on Wednesday without a ball being bowled. The final match of the series will be held at The Oval on Thursday.
