Multan's match at NSK starts at 5pm Karachi time, not 3pm. There is just over a couple of hours remaining.

I've just had a word with Irshad about his bowling in the match V Faisalabad yesterday - where he had figures of 0/39 in 1.3 overs....

Well, he told me he had both Hafeez and the other opener out on the very first deliveries he bowled to them, but unfortunately he had over-stepped. A no-ball also gives the opposition a "free-hit" the next delivery which they utilised to maximum effect. He over-stepped again during that short spell. Nevertheless, Hafeez batted beautifully. Also the target was small and there was hardly any pressure on the oposition when they came out to bat.

Now that's what he has said to me in private conversation - please do not construe it as an "excuse" which he wants to give to his fans for his terrible bowling returns of yesterday - but he is disappointed, yes.

Easa

Easatheman yaar how fast was Irshad bowling? How's his action and line?

There was no speed gun, but it looked like he was bowling in the high 80's atleast. He has a very smooth and fluent runup/action but his length was a bit up and down.

Looks a good prospect, though.

Easa
26th February 2006, 20:44
Multan Tigers just lost the match to the Rawalpindi Rams.

Because of a power failure, at NSK, the revised target was 100 from 10 overs.

Multan could only get to 75/5 from their ten therefore lost from thr D/l method.

Easa
26th February 2006, 20:44
Really feel sorry for Multan, wasn't their problem.

Farhad
26th February 2006, 22:47
Yah, indeed Irshad bowled a bit on the short side, but that is because the NSK pitch is like a cement strip, and in such a slam-bang 20-over encounter, bowling full is going to yield invariably to runs. However, the run-up is quite fluid and beautiful and it seemed he was bowling around the 140 kph mark at least.

1/21 off 4 overs is excellent. Add to that there was a catch of Qureshi at the wicket turned down in the thrid over, and the dropped catch in the last over. Pretty decent performance today.

He's staying back in Karachi after the end of this tournament, for the next ABN one-day series played by the teams.

Anyone got the highlights for the Multan game.

Wanna see Irshad in action.

Farhad
26th February 2006, 23:05
Ata-ullah

Irshad's run-up and action are very well-balanced and I don't see him having many injury worries. Time will tell how he progresses and if he does make a mark on the international scene. But I liked what I saw today.

He is not ultra-fast at the moment, but is definitely quite fast. The few deliveries he pitched up were quite well-directed and allied with swing.

He's already missing Lahore, as is pretty much confined to the hotel when not playing cricket.

Nauman
27th February 2006, 00:48
Yeah I liked his action, usually bowlers better then what you see of them in twenty20 competition because of the nature of the game, bowlers are always on the defensive. Though congratulations to Isloo Leapords for securing their first win, that innings by Bazid was a delight though Hawk's fielding was nothing short of pathetic.

Amjid Javed

It was absolutely diabolical. The commentators said it might have been the orange ball but a team cant drop so many catches unless they are downright pathetic fielders

It's a matter of luck too. In the match that you refer to, actually Irshad had BOTH of the openers on first-ballers but he had over-stepped. So the story may have been quite the opposite.

Some lovely drives and massive hits in quite an inning by Bazid.

Also got to see Najaf Shah who looks a pretty good left-arm prospect.
