We need a bigger pool of fast bowlers as express pace is deadly in Australia!
So, He's made it to the squad. Lets see if he's got what it takes or if he's just a one game pony. Hope he does well if given a chance.
Bas hogayi tasali?!
Well it was clearly evident that the guy is not ready for international cricket, to raw. But this experience will do a world of good for him, now needs to go back and work on his game. Has the ingredients to be successful, now the PCB need to make sure that he is nurtured well. Its not the end of the world.
I'd agree with that ..
If you look at the clip on OP he's bowling with some pride and straight don't know what's wrong with him right now and why he can't bowl straight and with beautiful pace.
hes only 19 and the pressure of his nerves and the crowd got ot him.
Plus he was bowling the same line and length he was in the domestic..basically the length that he would bowl when he was getting swing. There was none at offer hence all the down leg wide deliveries.
Pretty much this.
can somebody ask Shoaib why he still rates Umar Amin as a batsman then? 27 innings combined across the 3 int. formats with just one 50
Wasim gave an interview during the bowling camp he had where he said that he has worked with Anwar Ali and modified his action, to get the bowl to swing in. How he's swinging the ball both ways.
Modified doesn't men totally changing the action. Some small changes.
they said made changes in the action.
edit your post, dont quote tweets it messes up the thread.
sorry no can do, edit option isnt available any longer
didnt realise it did?!
just tag a mod in such cases
chandtara Energy please fix.
iAd it was a new grip that he taught. (for the outswingers)
New grip is different than changing the whole action lol
yeah I just read. I think it was someone else who got him to change his action.
In domestic he was bowling with Grey Balls which tends to swing more unlike Kookaburra. Tabhi mar kha gya
Does anyone thinks that Hafeez basically played with this guy - jolt his confidence in first match and then offered no respite to him in second - basically shot him down ??
nah..he was bowling the line and length thinking he would swing the ball, like the video in OP...only problem is that there was no swing and his experience made him persist with that line, until he changed it in the last over.
Yes that's true since he was forced to pick him by Misbah and Najam Sethi, according to sources. Apparently the only way he could've gotten him away from the team was this way.
Then select him for the ODIs. Why the hell would Misbah request him to be a part of the team he himself is not.
This seems like the scenario with Mohd Irfan when he came for first match in England and Afridi was visibly unhappy from him and basically shattered his confidence , only for him to bounce back after a couple of years so beautifully . Can Usman do that ??
That's what some journalists on twitter tweeted. Apparently Misbah was very impressed with him and wanted him to be slotted into the T20 squad since he performed in T20 matches and not in List A matches.
I'm not sure however.
I want proper speed guns. He bowled one ball at 92 and the next at 84. Can't possibly be right.
The 92 one was actually 82
Can I ask how you know ? (don't mean to question you)
Could just tell really...he was mostly between 82-84mph and the effort one at 85mph at most.
There were a few balls that did rush the batsmen tbh .
But the speeds were mostly that as the ball was mostly skidding onto the bat.
I think for sirilanka's test matches they should bring in M talha. He is fastest bowler in pakistan and lately, he had been very consistent
On a side note, annoys me when people with common names like "Usman Khan" and "Imran Khan" aren't referred to by commentators reporters and statisticians, for instance, as Usman Shinwari or Mohammad Imran, which are less common. Maybe it's the player's preference but if not people should really have commonsense
He joined Karachi Kings as an emerging player a few days ago after Abrar Ahmed was injured.
He's been injured and was out for sometime and the first thing I noticed in the first match he played a few days back was that he's changed his action and it's more like a left arm Umar Gul.
Today he bowled really well and got those yorkers in especially in the death overs.
It's good to see him in action again though!
mA u read the game very well..unlike some people note @Red Devil
I watched him get thrashed live in the stadium in his 2nd international game lol
how can say that to the best hope this player may be bring a big change in the pakistan team
