    KARACHI: With dreams of playing for Pakistan in the future, Lahore Qalandars' ambidextrous bowling discovery Yasir Jan has started training at the prestigious Marylebone Cricket Club in England.

    Yasir, who was discovered by Lahore Qalandars during the Rising Stars program last year, was sent to MCC by the franchise for further enhancement of his skills.

    Sameen Rana, COO of Lahore Qalandars, confirmed to Geo.tv on Tuesday that Yasir has commenced his training at MCC and has impressed the coaches in UK.

    “I have been receiving updates and he (Yasir Jan) has been very impressive in UK. I am sure once he returns from UK, he will be able to serve the country,” Rana told Geo.tv.

    Sameen also shared videos of Yasir's training at MCC in which he could be seen working with English coaches who looked impressed with his talent and skills.

    Yasir – an ambidextrous quick, and perhaps the first such bowler from Pakistan – was spotted by Lahore Qalandars during its talent hunt, the 'Rising Stars' program, last year.

    Rana further confirmed that the franchise Lahore Qalandars has two years' agreement with MCC for training and skill development of players.

    “This is next step of our player development program providing additional opportunities to exceptional talent like Yasir Jan. For 2018 English season, LQ will have two spots available to send players for training,” he revealed.

    Sameen Rana said that the franchise will continue with its players development program this year and is looking for a bigger participation this time.

    “This year we are targeting an even bigger number and we feel it is our duty to provide the best opportunities for their development and learning,” he said.

    “The contract with Sydney Thunder, contract with MCC and the acquisition of Durban franchise are all in line with this vision. We hope that our efforts will result in providing future stars to Pakistan cricket,” he said.

    It's good he's ambidextrous, but there must be one side stronger than the other. He should pick that side and concentrate on it. At international level, these margins will make a huge difference

    His right arm is stronger as of when he was measured at around or just over 140k's and the left arm was 135.

    His action with the right arm is just a copy of Steyn as a good 90% of his as he is the one he modelled his action on.

    Here watch him at 1.10 and you'll see what I mean.

    Who cares if he's ambidextrous? It's not like he's going to switch arms while bowling...

    You can't switch bowling arms at the last minute anyways during bowling.

    Being ambidextrous gives that edge as he can bowl either way depending who the batsman is.

    Is that actually allowed? You can change your bowling arm in an over?

    I think you can as long you inform the umpire who then informs the batsman. When you switch from e.g. Left arm over to left arm round, you tell the umpire and then he says "left arm round, 3 (balls) to come".

    With yasir, he just has to do the same.....when switching arms

    Yasir Jan set to test England ahead of crucial West Indies clash

    Modern teams like to prepare for every eventuality and England will take it to a next level next week when they face an ambidextrous bowler in the run up to the third Test against West Indies, reported The Telegraph.

    Yasir Jan, who has been training with the MCC Young Cricketers and playing for Watford Town this summer, will bowl at England and West Indies during the two days leading into the third Test.

    Yasir’s has been training at Lord’s as part of the MCC’s World Cricket Committee’s commitment to help the development of Pakistani cricket.

    Yasir was discovered last year during a talent search by the Pakistan Super League franchise, the Lahore Qalanders, which held auditions for budding fast bowlers in eight locations across the Punjab.

    The 21 year-old is said to reach 90-mph with his right hand and is ten mph slower with his left.

    AMBIDEXTROUS BOWLER TRAINING WITH MCC YCS

    [​IMG]

    MCC has announced that talented Pakistani ambidextrous bowler Yasir Jan will be training with the MCC Young Cricketers for the final few weeks of the season.

    The announcement comes after it was confirmed that Jan will be joining Watford Town Cricket Club for the latter part of the summer.

    Jan will train at Lord’s with the MCC Young Cricketers squad and gain the benefit of working with MCC coaching staff, including one-on-one sessions with Head Coach Steve Kirby.

    He has been granted a short-term visa to visit the United Kingdom to aid his cricketing development. In addition to his time training with MCC, he will gain experience of playing club cricket in the Hertfordshire Cricket League for Watford Town as a non-professional amateur overseas player.

    This initiative began with a pledge by the MCC World Cricket committee to Shaharyar Khan, former Chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board, and Ramiz Raja, Member of the World Cricket committee, for MCC to help some of the young aspiring talent in Pakistan, which is likely to have suffered with there being no international cricket played there since 2010.

    The 19-year old was identified in 2016 by Lahore Qalandars, who ran an open talent programme named ‘Jazz Rising Stars’ in association with local telecommunications giant, Jazz Mobilink.

    The move has been made possible through a link with Gulfraz Riaz, the Cricket Development Manager at the Club Cricket Conference and senior figure at Watford Town CC.

    Kirby said: “Thanks to Lahore Qalandars/Jazz Mobilink’s foresight and innovative thinking in establishing the ‘Jazz Rising Stars’ talent hunt, which is fully backed by the Pakistan Cricket Board, we have created a strong partnership with the Club Cricket Conference and Watford Town Cricket Club.

    The partnership has allowed us to come to an arrangement whereby this exciting young bowler can further his development with the help of MCC’s facilities and coaches.


    His talents are so exciting and we hope we can help nurture him as a player and as a person
    MCC is always trying to pioneer innovative ways to move the game forwards both nationally and internationally, and with Yasir’s unique ambidextrous talents, it shows where the game could take the next leap forward.

    His talents are so exciting and we hope we can help nurture him as a player and as a person, and give him a life experience he will never forget. We will also be arranging English lessons which will be important in his overall personal development for the future.

    I am really excited about this project and also where we can possibly take our vision of supporting talent from other international countries in the future.”
