    Visuals of a 15-year-old right-arm pacer Nasim Shah has caught the attention of the media in Pakistan months after a left-arm pacer had caught their attention.

    Nasim Shah, of Peshawar who bowls right-arm with an action similar to India’s Jasprit Bumrah, is seen bowling to the batsmen with some sheer pace. Added to his sheer pace, are the bouncers that he seems to be landing with ease. The youngster was part of the Pepsi U16, played in 2016 from Peshawar.

    Additionally, the pacer is now associated with the team Zarai Taraqiati Bank Limited in Grade-2 Cricket in Pakistan. Pakistan has always been known as the land of pacers, and its capability of consistently producing pacers in regular interval.

    Very often, the Pakistani pacers have gone on to become dominating forces in the pace-department, while others deceive the batsman with their swing-bowling. The country through Nasim has unearthed another talent.

    From the first looks of the pacer, it is safe to say that the right-arm pacer’s speed has been at the top-most in the game. His jaw-breaking and jaw-bending bouncers have gone viral since his video first emerged on the Internet.

    Outch - that action takes too much toll on the body, specially the back. However, he seems sharp.

    1. Putting too much stress on back and shoulder/arm.
    2. Bit of 'beamerish'
    3. One-dimensional bouncing line can get trashed in better levels of cricket.
    4. No clue on bowling brain, consistency and seam/swing.

    Love it - looks a great prospect. And his action is a million times better than bumrah. Don’t know what the writer is on about.

    Maybe the action puts stress on him and he might need slight refinement, but it has to be if he’s comfortable with it

    He bowls bouncers and is slightly one dimensional but he has been a success even though he isn’t express.

    On a serious note, I personally find it refreshing to see a tearaway giving it his all and doing nothing but trying to bowl fast.

    All this line n length, bowling brain will come. I’m sick of these old adages about line and length being more important.

    And his action, I’m not worried. He may get the injured somewhere down the line, but he might get injured even if he changes his action.

    Look at waqar, he broke down very young in 1992, but if you asked him honestly, he would never change what happened. Waqar is waqar because of what he did before the injury. He became a legend and the most feared bowler in the world before the injury.

    Yes he was still good immediately after and an honest performer after his second injury, but he would never swap those early years for anything else

    He’s only 15, what more do you want?

    If he’s bowling that fast at 15 he must have something in him.

    Bowling fast is overrated in Pakistan. Accuracy, bowl plan, accuracy and seam/swing are more important.

    Oh dear - another line and length argument!

    Look bro, you’re not wrong about emphasising accuracy etc but it’s not rocket science is it? Nor is it very insightful! We all know this.

    What is easier to teach? Pace or line and length?

    We should encourage young bowlers to bowl fast, we’ve had a never ending factory of line and length merchants over the last decade. None of which have done anything special.

    I’d rather have a raw pacer that can be taught accuracy, l&l, bowling to a plan etc.

    And keep him away from Aqib

    We hardly had any ACTUAL line and length guys. Asif was the last one. Its as difficult as bowling with pace.

    But that was their aspiration - those bowlers were built as medium fast line and length bowlers. Did they succeed? No. Did they try to be line and length? Yes.

    And we also haven’t had any out n out pacers either.

    You mention Asif, but that just proves my point. Asif’s speciality was his bowling brain and his movement, the wobbly seam and all that. Yes he had line and length too, but that’s not what was special about him.

    My point simply is that you will get bowlers aspiring for line and length all the time. Why discourage bowlers aspiring for pace when you have so few of them? Encourage them. Stop this nonsense about shooting down bowlers who want to bowl fast.

    Some of these line and length bowlers may become an Asif. Some of these pace bowlers may become a waqar or shoaib. Keep your options open

    Asif had perfect line and length but he was ridiculously good with getting the bowl to seam both ways at will. In fact he didn't just outwit top batsmen but made them look very inadequate and clueless. I doubt we'd ever get anyone like him again.

    Yes, seam movement/swing is important. But pace is way over-rated in Pakistan. You got failed pacers like Sami and Wahab.

    Such line length are essential in international cricket. If one can build pace over then, its great. But without line length Pace is useless even if you reverse it. Look at the video, Asif's seam/swing/drift got successful because he bowled at right line/length consistently.

    Right now we are doing nothing. None of our medium brigade got line and length of McGrath or Asif neither they got swing/seam to bowl express like Akhtar.

    I don’t know where to start. Sure Sami and Wahab have failed, but why only mention them. Let’s list the dozen or so medium pacers - rao ifthikhar, sohail tanvir, samiullah niazi, najaf shah, rahat ali, Imran Khan jr...

    If anything pace is underrated in Pakistan at the moment. Pakistan have abandoned pace for the last 10 years - the same old naive and boring line and length arguments have been made over and over. The selection has preferred medium pacers too in the search for line and length. What have we actually produced? Nothing! All this search for line and length has amounted to nothing.

    We need to stop being envious of other countries and stop searching for the brown “mcgrath” . Even the Aussies aren’t searching for a mcgrath replacement. They’ve actually turned to pace themselves. Every team is developing pacers look at South Africa, Australia, New Zealand...even India are trying (I emphasise trying ).

    Yet we’re still being envious of Australia and mcgrath! It’s ridiculous. Have some self respect people. Be proud of who you are, be proud of your heritage.

    Line n length is important.....duh....everyone knows that, tell me something new, give me some insight

    It's a highlight package so how did you come to the conclusion that he isn't consistent and doesn't have a bowling brain? You sound like poor man's Mamoon
