    Zafar Gohar is a slow left-arm orthodox bowler from Lahore. He has taken 1 wicket in his only List A match, while he has also bagged 2 wickets in his 3 T20 matches thus far. He is also a handy left-handed lower order batsman. He has scored 38 runs in his 3 T20 matches at an average of 19 and an eye-catching strike rate of 131.

    Full name: Zafar Gohar Khan
    Born: January 2, 1995, Lahore, Punjab
    Major teams: Pakistan Under-15s, Pakistan Under-19s, Zarai Taraqiati Bank Limited
    Batting style: Left-hand bat
    Bowling style: Slow left-arm orthodox

    Getting into Cricket

    I have been a keen follower of the game since my school days. I used to watch my superstars on TV and then tried to replicate what they do on the ground. I was often asked not to take it seriously as not everybody can become a successful sportsman, but I had the will and where there is will, there is a way. I knew I had it in me to prosper.

    School and Club Cricket

    I started playing cricket at my school and was the captain of the team. My school was Central Model High School, Lahore. During the time of Mr. Naseem Ashraf, we had many tournaments in our school and our rivals were the Muslim Model School. We were the top two schools in the city and had many memorable tape ball tournaments. I was one of the top performers of my school. These days, I am playing my cricket at the Garhi Shahu Club in Lahore.


    U15/U16 Cricket

    I used to play under the guidance of Mr. Shafqat Rana at the Race Course Park in Lahore. He was very helpful for me and he had an eye to discover new talent. He referred me for the U15 and U16 trials. I gave my trials successfully and got selected for the team. I remember Ata-ur-Rehman taking my U16 trials and was highly impressed with my all-round skills. I was named in the squad for the U15 World Cup in the West Indies and represented Pakistan U15s in that event.

    U19 Cricket

    After the success in U15 and U16 cricket, I was selected for the U19 team. I represented the Pakistan U19 team in the U19 World Cup in Australia, and took eight wickets in eight matches there. Just recently, I had a fantastic tour of England for Pakistan U19s. I was named as the best bowler of the tri-nation series, which included Bangladesh and England. I took 18 wickets in the seven matches I played and scored some useful and brisk runs for my team in the lower order. That series gave me a huge boost and depicted my credentials in front of the world.

    U19 Picks

    There are a few players from our U19 team who I’d like to mention here. I feel they can represent Pakistan in the near future. Sami Aslam, Zia-ul-Haq, Shayan Jahangir, Imam-ul-Haq, Mohammad Aftab etc, have all got what it takes to play for Pakistan. Zia-ul-Haq is my favourite bowler. He is really good. I like Shayan Jahangir’s style of batting. I was highly impressed with a few English cricketers too. Tattersall and Finch are very fine opening batsmen. Higgins, Rhodes, Winslade and Fisher complete the list of players I am looking forward to seeing in their national team.

    ZTBL

    I was selected to play for the ZTBL U19 team by Wajahatullah Wasti. I passed the trials and got selected to play for them. I took 40 wickets, along with scoring 450 runs, and was later appointed as their captain. I have also played for the ZTBL senior team, where Saeed Ajmal and Imran Nazir helped me do well. I played for them in the PCB Ramadan Cup and took two wickets in three matches. Although I did not get to bowl too many overs, it was a great experience for me and I also scored a 30-odd in one innings. Haris Sohail and Sharjeel Khan are the players from ZTBL who I admire.

    Cricketing Heroes

    I love watching Daniel Vettori and Graeme Swann bowl. I feel that Graeme Swann is a fantastic bowler. I like his action as well as his rhythm. His ability to bowl well in the difficult English conditions is commendable. I have also learned that Mr. Iqbal Qasim was a very witty bowler in his days. As he was also a left-arm spinner like I am, it is pleasing to know about him. In domestic cricket, I follow the batting of Haris Sohail, Sohaib Maqsood and Sharjeel Khan, and I also keep an eye on how Zia-ul-Haq, Mohammad Talha and Ahmed Jamal are doing.

    The Future

    I am very satisfied with what I have done so far, I have had an excellent start to my professional career. There are a few crucial first-class tours in the coming months and my aim is to make my mark in them. Hopefully, in the next two and a half years I will be able to represent the Pakistan national team.

    Really enjoyed watching him bowl during the U19 series recently, he has a lot of control and gets turn.

    He will have difficulty breaking into the senior time for a while considering the plethora of left arm spinners we have at the moment, but that may end up being a good thing for his development.

    How do you see his batting? Does it give him an edge over Raza Hasan? Is he that good spinner? I saw him last in the U19 World Cup in Australia and none of the spinners, including him, impressed me. Didn't quite notice him in the PCB Ramadan Cup as he said he didn't bowl too many overs.

    Raza Hasan is the better bowler, but Gohar's batting is very promising.

    Could be a fascinating spin battle down the road.

    It's not like you've got much quality in your side, it wouldn't hurt to give the guy a crack in the team.

    Not yet.
    He is a fantastic talent but we shouldn't rush him in. Its not as if we are in dire need of a good spin bowler anyway.

    He is a spinner and we have loads of quality spin bowlers

    Ajmal, Zulfi, Abdur Rehman and Hafeez. And even Raza Hasan who isn't currently in the side.

    All of which are senior citizens, containment bowlers or not genuine wicket takers

    My point stands.

    Zulfi is a genuine wicket-taker. Just look at his record in domestic circuit. Has taken 7 wickets in 3 t20s he has played.

    Ajmal comes next as the genuine wicket-taker.

    Yes couldn't agree more with the posts above that he is one hell of a spinner. He gets massive turn and has great control. Please could some of the other posters confirm my perception that he also gets drift and dip. I believe he does. This is what sets him apart from other spinners such as Rehman in particular who rely more on containment with variations in line and length.

    But he could well do with being kept at domestic level just a bit longer to sharpen his skills further.

    Got his maiden List A 5fer (5/56) in his only 3rd match.

    In today's match vs ZTBL got 2 wickets for 17 with an economical spell (ER less than 2 when the second best was +4), then later when he came to bat hit a quick-fire 17 @ SR 140, important considering that his team won the match by 1 wicket with 3 balls remaining.

    Also, during that U19 tour in England, he got 18 wickets @ average 11/SR 20 (with a 4fer in the final against ENG) in a country not conductive to spin and in the shorter format where spinners are even less at ease, so being the leading wicket taker is special.

    And as some mentioned he's a handy bat too, as he has already proven at U19 and List A levels.

    Mohammad Nawaz is a very good (spin) all rounder too so quite a competition between these 3, but I think

    in terms of batting : Ghulam >>> Nawaz > Gohar
    in terms of bowling : Gohar >> Nawaz = Ghulam

    All three would already be more valuable all round cricketers than &

    Finally we have found someone who will be able to replace Shahid Afridi. Zafar Gohar is a decent finisher as well and he has been consistent!

    he is an aggressive spinner and takes wicket in the middle overs. Saw his bowling clips and comes across as a very smart bowler !

    He is one for the future !

    Yet another all round performance, against England U19 :

    Hit 25 @ SR +270 and then took 3/38.

    http://www.espncricinfo.com/pakistan...ch/691319.html

    As of now, for the tournament he averages 42 @ SR 140 with the bat and 12 with the ball.

    I said the current Pathans should be kicked out like Afridi. Besides, Zafar Gohar Khan is born in Lahore, which is in Punjab if I'm not mistaken?

    Oh definitely agree. Gohar is a fantastic player, but as you and I both know, Pakistan always seems to miss the ball on their talent.

    Maqsood and Sharjeels name I have been saying for a year and look, right away production.

    This nonsense that Pakistan has no talent is the selectors way to justify the players playing. Now that the new players are performing, they have little to no defence as to why these players were sitting at home.

    Precisely. When you have fools like Afridi saying 'I am still better than most' and Hafeez making his idiotic statements, selectors are sheep to their whims. Afridi is the single worst cricketer from any nation to have played as many games as he has, and he can EASILY be replaced. Hafeez can easily be replaced as well, first choice would be Babar Azam.

    Being an all rounder is one thing, but he is a Hard Hitting all rounder which is a plus point.

    He is a hard hitting all rounder who bowls some very good accurate left arm spin.

    He is a natural replacement for Shahid Afridi after the world cup.

    What kind of variety he has ? does he bowl the straighter one ? and does he spin alot or pushes the ball quick in the air ?

    It is good to have him and raza hassan in backups. Raza hassan is still struggling for form after recovering from injury. future looks good for pakistan.

    Is there any good off spinners and leg spinners at U19 level ? i saw usman qadir bowling last year and he was not impressive with the ball at all. he is never going to replace Afridi unless he improves his bowling big time.

    The picture in post 70 is when Saqlain met up with the Under 19 boys in Leicester.

    Sad really that the PCB didn't ask Saqlain to go and give the boys some coaching sessions, instead Saqi went himself to offer them advice.

    Decent bat as well. Hopefully his action is fine. Have seen him bowl but at that time there was not much talk about bowling actions so can't completely remember how his action was.
