Pakistan opening batter Saim Ayub has recently revealed how he started playing his trademark ‘no look’ shot.

During a recent interview with a local news channel, the 21-year-old batter shared that the ‘no look’ shot was not planned and just happened unintentionally.

“I think it was the National T20 in 2022 where I played the no look shot for the first time but it was not something that I had pre-planned,” said the young batter.

“I was not able to find scoring options so when I saw that the fine leg was up in the circle, I played that shot. It was not my intention to not look at the shot, it just happened automatically.

“However, I don’t prioritise this since it is a high-risk shot. I try to play the other shots more often and only play the no-look shot when it is absolutely necessary,”

Saim Ayub also stated that he doesn’t aim for personal milestones, but instead strives to play his best and contribute to the team’s success.

“My target is Man of the Match, not fifty or a hundred. I don’t think about numbers as I aim to win the match for my team. It can be any figure, 50, 70 or 100, but I don’t think about that since I’m focused on winning the match,”

The young batter has represented Pakistan in 19 T20Is since making his debut against Afghanistan last year, scoring 270 runs at a strike rate of 131.06.
