Former Pakistan captain and team director Mohammad Hafeez has opened up about the flaw in the batting technique of Lahore Qalandars’ opening batter Sahibzada Farhan.

The right-handed batter scored a mere two runs in 12 balls during his side’s match against Islamabad United in the ongoing Pakistan Super League (PSL) season 9.

Islamabad United opted to bowl first and Naseem Shah bowled a brilliant maiden first over, which saw Farhan struggling against Shah’s swinging deliveries.

He continued to struggled during his brief stay at the crease before Hunain Shah sent him back to the pavillion.

Hafeez, during the A-Sports show ‘The Pavilion,’ pointed out the flaw in Farhan’s batting technique, resulting in his dismal performance in the match.

“He looked pretty uncomfortable while facing the first over, despite being an opener. He has this recurring issue of struggling against the swinging new ball,” said Hafeez.

“He is a great product and had a great season, but he needs to work on this issue. He needs to play the new ball with more control, otherwise, the top-class new-ball bowlers will keep challenging him,” he added.

Former captain Wasim Akram, also echoed the similar concerns over Sahibzada Farhan’s batting technique.

“The ball was seaming little bit and no doubt Naseem [Shah] bowled well, but Sahibzada [Farhan] looked clueless as if he has never played swing bowling,” said Akram.

Notably, Farhan is the fifth highest run-scorer in the PSL 9 with 241 runs in seven matches at a strike-rate of 136.15.

Meanwhile, Lahore Qalandars claimed their first victory in the PSL 9 yesterday by defeating Islamabad United by 17 runs.

Zaman Khan’s four-wicket haul after Rassie van der Dussen’s gutsy half-century helped the defending champions end their winless streak in this season.
