    "Working with Wasim Akram at the PSL was a career changing moment" : Rumman Raees

    The dismal performances by Pakistan in the recently concluded series against England served as a stark reminder of the gulf in quality between the top nations and the current Pakistan team in the Limited-Overs formats. The only ray of sunshine that appeared in this gloom was the comprehensive victory in the one-off game at Old Trafford where the Pakistan IT20 side trounced England by nine wickets to end the tour on a high-note.

    More importantly, though, this IT20 victory would have done wonders for the confidence of the Pakistan team as they look forward to their next assignment which is a three match ‘home’ series in the UAE against the reigning Twenty20 Champions, West Indies. Contrary to the age old cricket adage of never changing a winning combination, the Pakistan selectors perhaps recognising the importance of the upcoming series have named a fifteen-man squad which includes the name of the twenty-four-year-old Rumman Raees who did not feature in the one-off game against England.

    In an exclusive interview with PakPassion.net, Rumman spoke about his impressions of interacting with the legendary Wasim Akram in the Pakistan Super League (PSL), disappointment of missing out for the Asia Cup and World Twenty20 and looked forward to the upcoming IT20 series against the West Indies.

    The opportunity to meet one of the legends of cricket would excite many but Rumman Raees has had the distinct honour of playing in a team under the guidance of the great Wasim Akram during the PSL in 2016. This is an experience which he like anyone else in his position, would cherish forever as he remarked “The PSL was a great experience for me as I got to play alongside some top names in international cricket. It was fascinating and very useful for me to see how these players prepared themselves for games as well as how they conducted themselves on and off the field. However, what was invaluable for me as a player was that I got to work for close to sixteen days with a player of the stature of Wasim Akram. He gave me advice on my bowling but it was usually I who was asking the questions such as on swing bowling which was simply excellent. Working with Wasim Akram at the PSL was a career changing moment."

    The fantastic news in February 2016 that Rumman had been selected for two important tournaments based upon his success in the PSL soon turned into disappointment for the young fast-bowler as it emerged that he had suffered a hamstring strain and would not participate in the Asia Cup and World Twenty20 tournaments. To Rumman, missing out on such an opportunity was a great setback but one he took on the chin as he recalled “There is absolutely no doubt that coming so close to participating in two major tournaments and then being denied that opportunity due to reasons beyond one’s control was a big shock to the system. But I knew that injuries were part and parcel of any sportsman’s career and instead of feeling sorry for myself or expecting sympathy from others, it was up to me to persist with hard work and prove my suitability to the selectors in the future.”

    With the trauma of missing possibly career defining tournaments now consigned to history, Rumman then steadied himself and put his efforts in impressing selectors so that he could get another shot at proving his suitability for the national squad. The recently concluded National Twenty20 Cup therefore presented an ideal opportunity for Rumman which he grabbed with both hands.

    “I had to put the disappointments of the past behind me and show anyone who was watching that I had the skills and fitness in me to be the best. In that sense, the National Twenty20 Cup has been an excellent opportunity for me as I have bowled very well where I represented the winners Karachi Blues and picked up nine wickets in the tournament. It was also good that the national selectors, including the Chief Selector Inzamam-ul-Haq were present at some of the games I played and saw for themselves the progress I had made during this competition. I am glad that this hard work has borne fruit with the announcement of my name in the fifteen-man squad for the upcoming series against the West Indies.”

    Whilst the West Indies in Tests may not be the force they used to be in the past, the fact remains that they are the team to beat when it comes to the shorter forms of the game and it will take a performance of some magnitude for Pakistan to dent the confidence of the visiting side who were crowned twice as World Twenty20 Champions in 2012 and 2016. For Rumman Raees the upcoming tour is a stiff challenge but one he is looking forward to as he explained “The West Indies are a top class team. Each of the players in that team can pretty much take the game away from you so in terms of targets, each of the West Indies batsmen will need to be considered a threat. I have been watching some videos of West Indies players and have been planning some tactics but they have a dangerous line-up where each batsman can hit you for fours and sixes with ease. Fact is that we can plan as much as we like but things may or may not go according to our planning on the field and all that matters is that one puts in the hard work that is needed. The rest is up to the Almighty”

    For Rumman Raees the IT20 series against a strong team such as the West Indies represents an ideal opportunity to prove his mettle to the selectors and pay them back for the trust they have put in his abilities. He fully understands that a good performance in the series could provide help him establish a place in the Pakistan team, an objective he has little doubts of achieving “I have worked hard and trained well with my fitness at its best so far and I am sure that the selectors have taken that into account when selecting me for this series. On top of that I have played against England Lions and also took part in the PSL which gives me a unique perspective on how to bowl on the pitches in the UAE where pace is not present and the variation is the key. My aim, if given a chance, is to avail this opportunity and put in good performances for Pakistan and establish a place in the team, God Willing”, he concluded.

    good player, he doesn't go over the top and do things which he cant do.

    he bowls with what he is best at, no dramaybaazi of trying to bowl with pace and such.

    Guy has potential. Loved his attitude in PSL.

    I feel that to be successful at international level a bowler must be able to bowl fast (90+ mph) with a little bit of swing. Gun barrel straight like wahab can get hit for plenty but even a little bit of swing at that pace can make life difficult for batsmen.

    If pace is not there, then the bowler should be able to swing the ball both ways, extravagant swing is not needed, just a little bit of movement is good as long as the bowler has the ability to move it both ways. But without pace, the bowler needs to be extremely accurate, similar to Mohammad Asif or Vernon Philander.

    What are Rumman's strengths? What pace does he bowl at and can he swing the ball both ways?

    He isn't express pace, but he is quick enough. Don't know about his pace, but he is known to be a death bowler. He can bowl slower balls and vary the pace well. Shane Watson has very high hopes for him. I recall him saying he is "one for the future."

    Since coming back from injury his pace is up.

    He raises his non bowling arm more and uses it better hence he has gained atleast 7kph on his faster delivery compared to what we saw in PSL.

    Has improved quite abit.

    Needs to improve his fitness further to be considered for 10 overs of Int Cricket plus he should get amongst top wicket takers in national one day cup something he has never managed.

    Has he changed his action or is it a minor difference? I can see the non-bowling arm being better utilised here.

    Don't know if we actually do need another left armer in the side. The only way I see it happen is if he develops himself into a fast bowling all rounder like Stokes who bats well and can bowl in the high 80's.

    I have doubted in last 2 years whether Irfan can ever last a 5 match Odi series abroad because of his fitness but this year he has played selectively and has performed well. Still he is a huge gamble. Even at 37 he is highly unlikely to last worldcup even if performing at that time. Irfan has lost pace since his last two injuries plus age catching up. Almost 3 years ago vs SA He had his best Odi series and we won. Still because of bouce if he stays fit he will be handy in Australia.

    Why not Rumman for Rahat ?

    Irfan is unreliable in fitness terms and not effective, With Rahat you could expect that he won't breakdown during the match and has a decent record in the world cup played here however as much as I want Rahat to do well he has been disappointing and doesn't merit selection.

    But with Irfan it's a loss-loss situation, It's clear he is not a long term option. Ideally Rumman for Irfan and Aamir Yamin for Rahat should've been picked. It's unlikely that we win the series as Australia are clear favorites so should have brought in these guys for a change just like Hasan Ali was inducted.

    We cannot afford more than one short height pacers in our lineup considering modern day Odi Cricket where bowlers with such height will get hit on the up frequently even from good length on flat batting surfaces.

    For one Hasan is enough and justified.


    If you want Aamer Yamin as a number 6 batsman and someone who bowls 2 - 5 overs than I am fine. Otherwise if you see him as a genuine allrounder who will bowl 8 - 10 overs than sorry I won't vote.

    For me He is a specialist batsman who can bowl a bit and can be successful on seaming tracks. This is what he himself and the domestic team managements fail to grasp since he can touch 133 135 kph. So what they do ? They send him to bat at 8 and 9 and are destroying his Career. In Fc he should Bat at 5 while in List A he should Bat at 6 and in no format he should bat any lower than number 7. The quicker Yamin realises it the better it would be for him and his career.

    Surely he would've been a better selection than Rahat.
    Anyways hopefully Rumman gets his call up soon.

    He is too slow, I mean we have million left arm bowlers of 130/135 pace. We need 145 clicks pace bowler, rest is nothing to excited about to be honest, we will remain #8 team with this type of lot, none of them can dent international landscape of fast bowling 😪😪😪

    And can he bowl with new ball? Today he was around 135mark.
    I don't see why not. May need to work on his swing though.

    If our 145kph bowlers are being smashed everywhere then sometimes the better option might be to go for a different option.

    We have had 145kph bowlers who are getting smashed for 100 runs in an ODI. He will not do worst than them.

    His quick arm action makes him quite deceptive with the slower bowls. His bowling has grown on me this season. Definitely a better option than Tanvir in the shorter formats. Havent seen him swing the ball though which is a bit disappointin.

    @yasir he clicked 140-143 in WI Series, I think lost bit of pace after that or maybe not bowling as fast.

    Certainly did crank it up with new action.

    I like his action. He is 25.

    Raees and Hasan Ali can form a good combo.

    Guys get real he is a domestic bully and will remain so , don't have pace or swing to trouble International batsmen , remember Imran khan Jnr(2) he was one heck of a bowler in domestic cricket who relied on change of pace and slow cutters look what happend to him in International cricket , Rumman is just a faster version of him

    This guy is class, the wi tour can be a huge step and start of a new era if we just pick the youngsters for once and sack the budhas forever, i mean cmon man are the selectors really that blind or what?
    We have to pick players like fakhar, osama mir, ruman raees, hasan khan, maybe talat hussain (lad looked very good and can take singles at will) and aamer yameen

    These three should be the LOI attack.

    Nothing special. No pace and no swing just variations.

    Should remain a T20 specialist.

    We know Flaws of Wahab and Sami for long time, its anything but speed...Speed is the only reason they played this long...

    Speed is still the gold standard, we are too far behind the top teams SA/AUS/ENG/NZ in that race, we cannot go on top without those type of bowlers...Not a single fast bowler in our own league is very disappointing, in both PSL 1&2...You need 4/5 bowlers with 140+ avg speed, and 2 with 145+, in our domestic circuit, right now we don't have single one after 2010...Amir, Wahab, Sami all debute before that...

    Medium pacers can only offer so much, we have too many of them, same goes for left arm spinners...You need one good medium pace, not 3/4. Btw none of these guys have skills and willy of Asif and never will be... They are variety type bowlers, not really focus on fundamental skills, this is not good bowling culture, you got to have substance

    Really impressed with this guy's thinking when he bowls. He doesn't overdo it and always knows how to bowl well at the end too.

    I fail to see what he offers. Don't see him standing the test of time.

    Have we even produce a single bowler capable of bowling 137-142k with even one way swing in last 5 years?That's not too much to ask as every good test playing nations FC teams have couple of them
