    He has yet to come out and bowl. But he is the real deal. Ive seen him in domestic. Tall and gets bounce and has pace. Lets get it on. Anwar ali we have lost to drugs it seems. Dudes junk bond status.

    I am impressed. Looks a very good & hard working bowler. Will improve further with International exposure. The pace is already there to work with.

    Not the tallest but has some decent pace and generates good bounce . One to persist with for sure.

    Looked very good on this surface. Has some pace about him and was hurrying the batsmen. If he is decent with the bat, Pakistan may have a decent all-rounder in him to work with.

    How old is he? He looks about early 30s... can't invest in these 30 years old players.

    LOL. He's not in his 30s. His listed age is 23 so he's probably 25-26

    Not gonna judge him based off one match. He has the pace but so did Wahab. Hes gotta show a bit more. And I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for another Pakistani class bowler.

    I didn't see the match. Saw the highlights for Bilawal but I wasn't impressed. Could become a younger Aizaz Cheema.

    LOL at all the experts here. This guy has the potential to become a very very good fast bowler in all formats but if persisted with and given proper chances & guidance. Yes he looks around 24-25 but I think this is the right age for a fast bowler.

    thought he looked ok, has a bit of pace and will be interesting to see more of him before making a proper judgement, definetly something to work with.
    If he is actually an all rounder and can bat to a decent level then Pakistan would have a handy option for limited overs cricket

    I think he looked okay, but nothing more. pace of 140 is nothing extraordinary, even parnell bowls that now I'm sure Yasir Arafat in south africa would get something like that too.

    We need to remember, its under lights at the wanderers, the ball always zips through a bit more, but he does have a bit of pace about him too.

    nice simple action, but like WaQaReD! said if he can bat number 8ish, then he's a very good bowling all rounder option, he can fight it out with hammad over the long run.

    I think with the right training and coaching he could hit 150 quite easily . He's only a small lad and he was hitting 145 without hassle .

    Pace isnt everything , I'd see how he bats....Pakistan needs a quality allrounder to replace Razzaq

    He has to prove himself with the ball as well.

    One performance in favourable conditions is not enough to determine whether he is good enough or not.

    He is short and skiddy bowler. If this type of bowler can swing/seam the ball at good pace and with good line length they become deadly. Because any thing @ 145 comes at bat like 150 bowled by bowlers with normal height. As in the match his balls at short of good length were hurrying on the batsman and they were clearly late on shot. He has good yorker and slow ball too in his Armory.But definitely he is not a finished product he will improve if he continues hard work and can prove an asset for Pakistan team. His batting is not good enough but he can be a useful lower order batsman like Johnson, Swaan etc.

    I think we can all agree that you hadn't actually seen him in domestic

    I agree, but isn't that exactly, exactly, exactly, completely, similar to what Wahab does?

    Is skidding the ball a bad thing? Great Malcom Marshall was also a skidder bowler becoz of short height and Roach is a current one. With right pace and line and length bowler who skids the ball is more effective.

    The guy I quoted supports Wahab, but attacks a guy who does the same. That was my point.

    Bilawal might be the same type but looked ordinary
