UAE player backs Pak bowlers to be Proteas batsmen's 'nightmare' during two-Test series

Karachi, Oct 13 (ANI): United Arab Emirates (UAE) all-rounder Rohan Mustafa has backed Pakistani bowlers to be a 'nightmare' for South African batsmen during their two-Test series, starting from Monday.

Mustafa's side saw the prowess of the Pakistani bowlers during their two-day warm-up match with each other, which Pakistan won with a comfortable margin.

According to www.PakPassion.net, Mustafa hailed the bowlers, especially the towering Mohammad Irfan, as a nightmare for most batsmen worldwide, saying that with his height, Irfan can make the ball rear up from a good length and this is a problem for most batsmen round the world.

Mustafa also said that even in the heat of UAE and slowness of the wicket, Irfan managed to bowl some extraordinary deliveries.

Praising Zulfiqar Babar, Mustafa said that Babar would be a handful against South Africa if the wickets he plays on takes some spin, adding that Pakistani spinners will have the upper hand against South Africa.

According to Mustafa, the Pakistani team's fitness looked very good, adding that he believes that Pakistan will win this series if the spinners can have access to pitches that assist spin as otherwise the wickets are too slow for the fast bowlers to have an impact. (ANI)
