Hasan Ali has received praise from the cricketing fraternity for his brilliant bowling in the second Test match between Pakistan and South Africa at Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium. Hasan picked up a ten-wicket haul in the Test match as Pakistan comfortably defeated South Africa by 95 runs and wrapped up the series 2-0.
Leg-spinner, Shadab Khan, took to Twitter to congratulate Hasan Ali on his brilliant comeback. Shadab and Hasan both debuted around the same time and are part of the famous ‘Roti Gang.’ The two youngsters are known as best friends in the squad.
Shadab tweeted, “Allah mehnat ka phal zarur deta hai [The Almighty always rewards hard work]. Congratulations Hasan Ali on your 10 wickets… Electricity is temporary, generator is permanent.”

Hasan’s heroics helped Pakistan win the series against South Africa after a gap of 14 years. The series win has also lifted some pressure off the national team after a string of poor performances on their tours of New Zealand and England.
Shadab is currently out of action due to an injury, while Hasan recently regained full fitness after spending over a year on the sidelines. The two have been a regular part of the national side and were part of the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy-winning squad.
Both the players will be part of Islamabad United in the upcoming sixth edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL). Shadab was appointed as captain of the side last year, while Hasan was drafted in as the platinum pick this season.
