Mohammad Asif is considered one of the best swing bowlers Pakistan has ever produced. Despite his tarnished career, Asif impresses one and all when it comes to swinging bowling. Asif in his career before the venue scandal had batsmen in all sorts of problems. In an interview with ESPNCricinfo, Asif said that he loved every spell he played, but if he had to choose one show, it would be the 2006 Karachi Test against India. In the Test match, Asif helped Pakistan win with 341 runs as he scalped seven goals in the game. Scandal Repairing the Place: Pakistan’s Cricket Board Never Tried to Save Me, said Mohammad Asif.
“I enjoy playing cricket to its core. I really like it and that means that I like every spell I play, because every spell has a story, context and purpose for it. If for example in a particular spell I don’t get a wicket, I’m still learning something what’s important about the batsman and how to get his wicket at a later time, “said Asif.
“So all my spells are good, but if I have to narrow it down, I will remember the Karachi Test against India. The biggest blow of the moment. I remember Shoaib Akhtar in the dressing room worrying about how we were” “I took it out. I took it out. I just took it out and showed it to him. So the particular game that I remember, and then the Kandy Test where I don’t really remember who except Umar Gul or Rao Iftikhar Anjum came to me and asked how? “I was making the ball swing, when for them the ball didn’t move at all. I don’t know if I’m in a hurry or maybe they are [Sri Lankan batsmen] in a hurry (laugh). 11 goal is fun, “he added.
The tainted pioneer also spoke of his regrets after ending his career in a sad tone. “Of course. My ambition is to finish my career with a better tone and I have regrets. But that’s a different story. I think whatever happened should happen and it’s okay. Everyone has regrets in their lives and some want to talk about them, but I think I’m fine. Everyone makes mistakes and I do it too. ”
On Mohammed Amir retiring from Test cricket, Asif said, “I condemn PCB for how they saved his career. But it is his duty to help Pakistani cricket in a difficult situation and he must remain, especially when they have helped him back. However, it is a decision PCB to let him go, but if he was supposed to leave the Test cricket at this age, it really was a curse for those who fought very hard to bring it back in. And did anyone ever take the name Amir, saying he was the heaviest bowler that had to be dealt with? Obviously not. ”
Asif before the venue-setting scandal, which he was banned for seven years, represented Pakistan in 23 Tests, 38 ODI and 11 T20I and took 106, 46, and 13 goals respectively.
