IND vs WI 2nd T20: This Pakistani cricketer admires Harshal Patel

Story Highlights

  • In the second match, Harshal had bowled the last over.
  • Now Pakistani cricketer praised

IND vs WI 2nd T20: Indian fast bowler Harshal Patel is in a lot of headlines. Harshal had bowled the last over in the T20 match against West Indies on Friday. In that last over, he was hit for two sixes on the ball. But despite this, Patel did not lose his patience and ensured India’s victory.

Now former Pakistan cricketer Salman Butt is very impressed with Harshal Patel’s bowling in the second T20 match against West Indies. Butt feels Patel is adept with variations in pace and can bowl accurate yorkers. Butt believes that if Patel continues like this, his future is bright.

‘His future will be brilliant’

Salman Butt told an English newspaper, ‘Harshal Patel’s change in pace is spectacular. He bowled yorker balls during the second T20 match. If he keeps this up, his future is going to be good. If he performs like this then he will continue to play in IPL. He is already playing for India.

Salman Butt also said that Harshal Patel is a fast bowler who relies on variations as well as slow deliveries that he has in his arsenal. Salman believes that the speed of the arm of Harshal Patel does not change.

He said, ‘He is such a player, who relies on his variety. He has a good art of bowling slow balls. When he bowls a slower ball, his arm speed doesn’t change and I think that’s his strength. So he has a good future in white-ball cricket.

India lead 2-0

Meanwhile, India beat West Indies by eight runs in the second T20I to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series. The third and final T20 match will be played on February 20 at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata.
