AB de Villiers names Mohammad Asif to Bowl for his Life


AB de Villiers, the legendary South African cricketer, named former Pakistani pacer Mohammad Asif as the bowler he would want to bowl for his life due to his ball skills

When asked to name a single bowler during an interview on his YouTube channel, the former captain quickly responded, “Mohammad Asif.”

AB de Villiers, who played 114 Tests for South Africa, praised the right-arm pacer, calling him a game-changer and saying he was unplayable with the new ball.

Hashim Amla, another legendary cricketer, praised Mohammad Asif last year, calling him a “magician with the ball” who always gave him trouble on the field.

Similarly, Kevin Pietersen, a former England batter, defined Mohammad Asif as the most difficult bowler he had ever faced, describing him as a master of mind games.

Asif’s reputation as one of cricket’s greatest bowlers is well-deserved. He has inspired admiration from other cricketing greats due to his magnificent skills and talent

For instance, veteran England fast bowler James Anderson stated in an interview last year that he attempted to learn from Asif’s technique after watching him play in England in 2010.

Mohammad Asif appeared in 23 Test matches for Pakistan, taking 106 wickets at an average of 24.4. In 38 One-Day Internationals, he took 46 wickets.
