    He will rip through WI. Every spinner in this Pak lineup will rip through WI. Easily one of the weakest playing teams of spin

    Plus pitches assist spin there. Remember Ajmal took an 11-fer last time in one of the tests

    If Fakhar and Shahzad play we wont have an issue. Both of them are brutal against spin

    That includes Kamran Akmal too

    He will be fine, not because of the opposition or pitch but because of his ability and brain.

    2nd best bowling figures on T20I debut and should've had Pollard had Kamran not spilled his catch.

    Take a bow Shadab. Still early days though, needs to keep this up.

    The kid is running riot.
    Though, he tends to bowl the googly alot. Batsmen will start picking him eventually.

    He will learn with time. He adapted in today's match when Samuels was starting to read his googly and hit him for a four and Sarfraz shouted at him "Maine kaha hai ke nahi!" (I told you not to bowl the googly), after which he only bowled one googly to Samuels, which was the one he got Samuels' wicket with.

    He has developed this killer googly very recently which is good to see. Has really improved his game since a year when I first saw him play in the Pakistan cup. Fakhar, Shahzad, YK played him quite easily and he didnt look threatening at all but fair play to him for going back and adding more weapons to his game. That is one seriously mean delivery and seems unplayable right now.

    However guys, West Indies are horrific against Spin so lets please wait till he plays teams who play spin well.



    Shadab, Asghar, Zafar Gohar, Irfan Khan, Usama Mir

    Too many spinners in Pakistan right now and need to get rid of Imad. Offers virtually nothing against a strong opposition

    I noticed some change in Shadab khans run up, getting closer to crease and landing areas are improved too.

    Before he use to have Abdul Qadir type approach vs. now, which is much straighter to the crease.

    Anybody agrees?

    Always knew he would come good with the bat, but I thought it would take some time for his batting to develop. His rise has been phenomenal. Long may it continue inshaAllah

    He is showing his worth with bat already... But its his bowling that we need more

    When Yasir comes back, it'll be between Faheem and Shadab to fight for that spot.

    Can he convert into a proper batsman like Steven Smith? Yes he's much weaker than Yasir but I don't want him to be out of the team - he's got a far too good attitude to be left out.

    Him and Faheem should be part of Test side consistently, both have shown sign to be the all-rounders we were searching for long, long time.

    Their presence gives us much needed batting depth and further bowling options as well.

    Looks assured at the crease and improved massively.

    Really impressed by both Shadab and Faheem. The beauty of having all rounders in the side. Add so much balance.

    Shadab needs to carry on wokring on his batting. On his way to becoming a genuine batsman.
    Also needs to improve his temperament for bowling in tests, I'm not too fussed about this though as I know he will get there soon

    Shadab reveals secret behind his consistent batting performances

    Revealing the secret behind his consistent batting in Test cricket, Pakistan all-rounder Shadab Khan said, “Whenever I go into bat, I bat as if this was my last innings.”

    Speaking to the media after a disappointing day for Pakistan at Leeds, the leg-spinner admitted that he cannot fill the gap left by absence of Yasir Shah. “I didn’t do that well at Lord’s and I realize that I cannot fill the gap left by absence of Yasir but I will try my best,” he added.

    Commenting on his batting performance he said, “There was swing and seam in the second session today but I tried to bat the way I usually bat.”

    “The weather makes a big difference as when we started to bowl, it was very sunny. Tomorrow, cloudy weather is expected so we will try to get England out quickly as possible,” the 19-year-old said.

    When asked whether he would love to bat up the order or not, he replied, “All batsmen ahead of me are there as specialists and they are doing well. There have been no discussions about me being promoted up the batting order.”

    Comparing Test cricket with One Day Internationals (ODIs) and T20s, Shadab said, “[Test cricket] is quite difficult for me, especially compared to the kind of cricket I had played before.” He was quite pleased and satisfied with his performance in the longest format of the game. “I am glad that my form is good, I am scoring runs and taking wickets also. I am feeling good about myself; I played my first Test and then played a lot of T20Is and ODIs which gave me a lot of experience of international cricket.”

    Giving credit to England bowlers, he said, “The decision to bat first was a good one but England bowled well. Steve Smith is my favourite but I did not come into this team as a batsman and my focus is on bowling.”

    PSL boosted my confidence: Shadab

    SHARJAH: Barely two months after being noticed at the HBL PSL 2017, Shadab Khan made his international baptism with a man-of-the-match award against the ICC World T20 champions West Indies, says a press release.

    Then Shadab returned with figures of 7-3 at Bridgetown and followed that up with four for 14 in his next shorter format match.

    His confidence surprised the cricketing world. The unassuming lad from the small town of Kamar Mushani (meaning bank of a river) was as unknown as a village in the Mianwali District.

    The district had produced two greats of Pakistan cricket — Imran Khan and Misbahul Haq.

    Shadab would play cricket and, as a pass time, jump in the nearby canal with his childhood pals.

    He would surprise the village inhabitants with his leg-breaks and confident batting. He knew how to swim in troubled waters.

    Shadab made his initial strides long before his PSL debut for Islamabad United in the second edition in 2017. A year before, he had played for Pakistan in the ICC U19 Cricket World Cup in Bangladesh, finishing as joint-highest wicket-taker for his team with 11.

    A few months later, he made his first-class debut for Pakistan ‘A’ on the tour of England, taking five wickets and scoring a valuable 48 in team’s win over Sri Lanka “A” in an unofficial Test.

    But, his name propped up when made a match-turning 132 and had figures of four 84 and five 82 for Pakistan ‘A’ against Zimbabwe in October that year, that paved his way into the PSL.

    “PSL grew my confidence,” said Shadab. “Since I had played for Pakistan ‘A’, I found PSL easy and it allowed me to learn more and more. You rub shoulders with international and senior players and that’s an invaluable experience.

    “PSL provides a good platform to young players and my advice to all the players will be to work hard and make use of this golden opportunity.”

    He took nine wickets in PSL 2 and instantly came on selectors’ radar.

    “The tour to the West Indies was great and captain Misbah encouraged me,” Shadab recalls. He also made his Test debut on that tour. He took nine wickets in Islamabad’s title win in 2018.

    Although Shadab managed to get just four wickets in Pakistan’s ICC Champions Trophy triumph in 2017 but it was his confidence against India that made headlines.

    He instantly convinced skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed to take a review after he trapped Yuvraj Singh in front of the wicket.

    “You grow in confidence by playing regularly,” said Shadab. “I was convinced that the ball had hit the pad first and then the bat, so I was pretty sure and Sarfaraz backed me in taking a review.”

    England’s umpire Richard Kettleborough was unmoved, but on replay he had to change his decision, much to the amazement of the crowd and commentators.

    Slowly and gradually, Shadab made an impact in the longer format as well, scoring three half centuries in as many Tests in the United Kingdom in 2018, one in a crunch situation against Ireland and two versus England.

    Pakistan’s head coach Mickey Arthur believes Shadab can become a genuine all-rounder in future.

    “His batting is going to get better and better, and he’s our best fielder. He’s in the game all the time and he’s just a lovely, lovely boy,” remarked Mickey last year.

    “He has got everything to become a successful all-rounder.” After being part of ICC Champions Trophy victory Shadab wants to win the World Cup for Pakistan.

    “It’s a dream to win the World Cup and I will do my best to contribute to team’s victory in England,” vowed Shadab, who has 47 ODI and 44 T20I wickets. His tally in five Tests is 12.

    At times Shadab misses a jump in the canal as he can no more go to that place for the fear of too many people would gather to see him.

    “I miss my friends, but I tell them that it’s like a movie. Once I achieve what I aim for then, this movie will finish.”
