With some of them specialising in spin and others preferring faster, pacier forms of delivery, they would’ve surely been pleased to learn the art of the perfect delivery from him.
As the day progressed, the Azhar imparted to the kids the skill of batting in the death overs. It was an event that ably drew in not just the young ones, but a few of veterans of the sport as well, with even coach Adnan Sabri lashing a fierce drive over the top of the covers for six.
“The idea was that we’d done the camp according to, on the first two days, where the skill levels are, what kind of bowlers they are,” explained Azhar It was easier for them to understand the method so they were bowling really well.”
“On the first two days, I was watching these guys and then I was helping them get the skill levels, so it is really important for them to have these deliveries.”
