    [VIDEOS] Talent Spotter : Rohail Nazir

    A profile of a Rohail Nazir, a young wicket-keeper batsman from Islamabad who has impressed one and all by piling on the runs in Under-16 and Under-19 cricket.




    Full name: Rohail Nazir

    Born: October 10, 2001, Islamabad

    Major teams: Federal Areas, Islamabad U19

    Batting style: Right-hand bat

    Fielding position: Wicket-keeper


    Interest in cricket

    As a family we have always been interested in cricket. One of my brothers, Tahir, is an expert tape-ball cricket player but no-one except me has played hard-ball cricket. I, like many others, started playing cricket in the back-streets with no formal introduction to the game. My father always encouraged me to play cricket as he had an interest in the game as well and that helped me a lot to develop myself.


    Starting Regional Under-16 cricket

    I did not play cricket at the school level but in 2015 I went for selection trials in Islamabad for the regional Under-16 level and was told that I needed to play club cricket before I could join up. The coaches really liked my batting, but I was told that I wasnít ready for the demands of that level of cricket but they also said that I didnít need to feel disheartened at that time. They wanted me to become more mature before trying out for the regional Under-16 team. My name was not included in the final list of selected players for that year which was disappointing. However, looking back that was a good thing for me as I joined Diamond Cricket Club in 2016 at the age of 15 where I was first exposed to the hard-ball which was to help me in my eventual selection for the Islamabad Regional Under-16 squad.


    Selection for Pakistan Under-16 series against Australia Under-16s in Dubai

    Once I was selected for the Islamabad Under-16s, I was appointed vice-captain and I did not let my side down as I scored two centuries at the Pepsi PCB Cricket Stars Under-16s Tournament in my debut season. This caused my name to be picked for an NCA camp which in turn, lead to my selection for Pakistan Under-16s series against Australia which was held in the UAE in early 2017. Most of the players on the tour were a little stressed about playing a side from Australia but I had no issues with that as I was confident that I could absorb all the pressure. I wasnít wrong as I ended up with two hundreds to my name as well as seven stumpings and a catch. My performances were appreciated by all and I also made a lot of friends from the Australian team who are now looking forward to seeing me in Sydney during the Lahore Qalandars' tour of Australia.


    Experience of playing Grade 2 cricket and being part of the Federal Areas squad for the Pakistan Cup in 2016

    I was fortunate enough to have played Grade 2 cricket for Omar Associates which was captained by Saad Nasim and was also named for the Federal Areas Squad for the Pakistan Cup in 2017. This team had some big names like Imad Wasim who was our captain as well as Mohammad Hafeez, Sami Aslam and Haris Sohail. Whilst I did not get a game in the Pakistan Cup, the experience of being in a squad with such top players was very helpful for a young player like myself when I played in the Rising Stars tournament for the Lahore Qalandars.


    Experience of playing Inter-Region Under-19 One Day and Three Day tournaments

    It was an amazing experience playing at this level at such a young age where I represented Islamabad region. I was declared best all-rounder/outstanding cricketer for the 3-day tournament where I scored 508 runs and took 25 catches while also affecting two stumpings; this really was a proud moment for me and my family. Overall, in both One Day and 3-day tournaments, I scored 914 runs to become the 2nd highest scoring batsman and had 44 dismissals in total. Obviously these kinds of performances also helped me in eventually getting selected for the Lahore Qalandars Rising Stars squad for Australia and will of course help me progress in the future as well.


    Upcoming tour of Australia with Lahore Qalandars

    I have had the honour of playing in the Rising Stars tournaments organised by Lahore Qalandars on two occasions. Whilst the first time, it was a new experience, in 2017 I was better prepared due to having played Grade 2 cricket and also being part of the Federal Areas Pakistan Cup squad. To me, the Lahore Qalandars environment is the ideal starting place for any young player. They really do look after their players very well and give everyone a fair chance. During the Rising Starsí games this year, I was not getting enough chances to bat so Aaqib Javed told me that they wanted to wait for a time until I had batted before taking a decision on the Qalandars squad for Australia. Thankfully, in the last match, I got to bat and scored 29 runs off just 12 balls and that performance played a big role in my selection for the Australia bound squad.


    Happy as a wicket-keeper batsman

    I am very happy keeping and feel that I can contribute much more doing both jobs. I do not feel any stress doing dual duties and my performances are not affected by this. I have no problems opening or playing one-down at all or for that matter any position as required by the team.


    Role model and mentors

    I am extremely indebted to Moeid Shiekh who has been my mentor and coach at the Diamond Club. He has taken great care for my progress and responsibility for my progress. He has been like a big brother to me and helped me based on his own experience. In terms of a role model, I have always been a fan of AB de Villiers as I have always found his style of batting to be amazing and of course, he has also kept wickets for South Africa in the past.


    Future aspirations

    Like any youngster in my position, I am looking forward to a future where I will represent my country but I do understand that there is a lot of work to be done before that can happen. My long-term goal is to play in Tests for Pakistan as that to me is the best way to judge the true worth of a cricketer. In the short term, though, I have a few targets to achieve. The main one is the Under-19 Asia Cup which will be held in Malaysia in November and I hope to be a member of the Pakistan squad and hopefully good performances in that tournament, coupled with a good tour of Australia with Lahore Qalandars should also get me a place in the PSL side for Lahore. All these goals require hard-work which I am prepared to do, God Willing.

    I understand the video is from when he is batting in the death overs, but the mark of a good batsman is how stable and steady he is at the crease. Rohail is loosing his shape for every delivery and throwing the kitchen sink at it. This might work in domestics but won't flourish in internationals.


    That being said this is just one video and perhaps it is not a good advertisement of his talent. He is also "officially" only 16 and no 16 year old should be written off.

    He reminded me of Anwar Ali


    dont think Rohail is a natural hitter of the ball, looks more like a middle order player

    He has almost always batted in the top order at U16 and U19 level. However, he was slotted in the lower order for this tournament during all the matches so had to play a different role, one that probably doesn't come to him naturally.

    In Pakistan there is this strange and damaging generalisation that domestic allrounders and keepers have to bat 6 or power

    Looks like he's playing in the Pentangular U-19 T20 Cup.

    Not sure how he did today as the scorecard hasn't been updated yet.

    Excellent, thanks.

    Far too many people writing him off way too quickly. He is still in the early days of his career, give him time to develop.

    Excited to see him and a few others in the U19 Asia Cup. Do you know if it is televised?

    Is Rohail Nazir ready to take over WK-duties after Sarfraz Ahmed

    I have been watching parts of the series between Pak U19s and SL u19s and really impressed by Rohailís batting. He is averaging 70 with the bat after 4 matches. Very good puller and plays spin extremely well.

    He is also WK. I havenít watched much of his keeping but he looks very fit and I believe he is good with the gloves AS well.

    One thing I donít like is his poor calls and running between wickets so he needs to work hard on that.

    So shall he rot in domestic or is he already ready for the big task after the WC?

    On the other hand he is only 17 (officially) and should probably play a couple of years of first class. But then again he can also be overlooked if the selectors donít watch domestic cricket.

    Your thoughts?

    Hope NCA are working with Umair Masood. He should be the next in line. Scored a lovely hundred in under 19 WC of 2016 and haven't got decent domestic opportunities after that.

    from what little i have seen he is another player in the mould of iman or rizwan

    we seriously lack good lower order talent, mainly because these players are never given a chance

    This lad is highly rated and most of the coaches rate him.

    318 runs, average of 45.42 in the series against South Africa.

    Decent wicket-keeper by all accounts.

    I think he will be better suited for test cricket.

    Considering how Inzi picks his squad he'll need a decent PSL in 2020 to get in line. Still very young at this moment though for a bat.

    Okay i have not seen much of him but I am sorry to say that as of now, he has many things to improve on as a batsman. He is young and he can improve his stroke play. It is really important if he wants to succeed in international cricket.

    On a side note, Haidar Ali looks a terrific batting talent. I rate him higher than Rohail as of now. Must keep an eye on him.

    Watch the videos again.... most of this offside shots are with his hands too far away from his body sort of like Fakhar. Needs to fix this ASAP.

    Ohh i watched just one video clip of his and he looked really compact and a stroke maker. I need to watch more videos of his i guess.

    Rohail is decent but will struggle against genuine fast bowlers. Umair Masood has stronger base which results in smoother strokeplay, PCB should keep an eye on him.

    Such a shame that he never got much support against India.

    Also good to see him taking responsibility by batting at number 3.

    He is certainly asthletically pleasing and pretty stylish.

    Would be interesting to see if he can adjust his play in a lower role around 5-6 since with batsmen in Babar/Haris and possibly Saud in the future, its hard to see how he can fit in that 3-4 role.

    Yes very impressive young cricketer. Eagerly waiting for his performance in coming FC season if performs well he should be fast tracked to national side, or understudy to Rizwan, who should be the first choice keeper now, not Saffi.

    Why Rohail Nazir should be selected as a back-up keeper for upcoming tours

    UNDER 16:

    At this time he was only 15 years old.

    vs AUSTRALIA (3 matches)

    BATTING AS OPENER: AVERAGE: 86
    STRIKE-RATE: 90.53

    UNDER 19:

    At this time he was only 17 years old and given captaincy of under-19 team.

    11 WINS, 4 LOSSES AS CAPTAIN.

    Batting as a number 3 -

    BATTING FIRST AVERAGE: 48.67 (5 WINS 1 LOSS)
    STRIKE-RATE: 82.02

    BATTING 2ND AVERAGE: 64.13 (6 WINS 3 LOSSES)
    STRIKE-RATE: 84.93


    AVERAGE BASED ON POSITION:

    OPENER: AVERAGE 86 (under 16) 3 matches
    NUMBER 3: AVERAGE 54 (under 19) 13 matches
    NUMBER 4: AVERAGE 78 (under 19) 2 matches



    At the age of 17 a young man named Rohail Nazir has handled the duties of captaincy and also wicket-keeping of the Pakistan under-19 national team. With a captaincy record of 11 wins and 4 losses he has shown he can also lead the team. He can also bat at number 1,3 and 4, this is perfect as Pakistan currently are searching for a solid number 1 and number 4 batsman as number 2 and 3 are occupied by Imam and Babar.
