Proper inswinging delivery from Haris had Dale Steyn singing in praise of the pacer
Pakistan came up against Sri Lanka in the Asia Cup 2022 final and opted to bowl first. The decision paid dividends as soon as Naseem Shah opened the bowling attack.
With a wicket down in the first over, it was up to Haris Rauf to smother Sri Lanka from the other end.
Facing off Danushka Gunathilaka, Haris pulled out a gem of a delivery that had Dale Steyn appreciating it on his social media.
"Ooof that was beautiful," wrote the king of swing himself on Twitter.

Haris removed Pathum Nissanka earlier in the innings as Babar Azam took a fantastic catch running back. Skipper Babar Azam's captaincy paid off at every stage, which also included handing Haris another over.
