Asif Ali-PSL-9-Players-Draft

DUBAI: International Cricket Council (ICC) nominated Pakistan’s hard-hitting batter Asif Ali for Men’s Player of the Month (October). 

Asif, who led Pakistan to two back-to-back victories against New Zealand and Afghanistan in T20 World Cup 2021, joins Bangladesh’s Shakib-al-Hasan and Namibia’s David Wiese in nominations.

Asif struck 27 off 12 balls in crunch moments to win the match for Pakistan against New Zealand. The powerful inning was followed by yet another eye-catching knock from him including four sixes in the 19th over to seal an important third victory in the extravaganza against Afghanistan.

Cricket fans across the globe will have the right to vote for the nominated candidates. The ICC will announce the winner next week.
