Haris Rauf has been exceptional in recent times for Pakistan in the absence of Shaheen Afridi
Imran Khan, the 1992 World Cup-winning captain and former Prime Minister of Pakistan, heaped praise on pacer Haris Rauf and termed him as an 'excellent bowler'.
Former all-rounder engaged with people in Adiala village in a hearty chit-chat after his helicopter made an emergency landing while en route to Bani Gala.
The 70-year-old inquired about their favorite cricketers and also asked them for their opinions about some of his personal favorites.
Khan opined he has not seen many new kids playing but asked about Shaheen Afridi and later named Haris Rauf as an excellent bowler.
During the exchange, Khan praised Rauf for his fast bowling. “Haris Rauf is an excellent bowler,” the PTI chief can be heard saying.
When he asked about wicketkeeper-batter Mohammad Rizwan, somebody from the crowd complained about his slow batting approach.

It must be noted Haris Rauf has been exceptional in recent times for Pakistan in the absence of Shaheen Afridi, who is recovering from a knee injury.
The 28-year-old is yet to make his Test debut but is among the best bowlers in white-ball cricket. He has 27 and 62 wickets in ODIs and T20Is, respectively.
