    Shaheen Shah Afridi and Haris Rauf: Take a bow, yorker kings

    What a great sight. Two young fast bowlers bowling from each end nailing their yorkers ball after ball and in the process winning the Final for Lahore Qalandars.

    No variations. No slower balls. No bouncers. No slower ball bouncers. Just quick yorkers. Rauf even hit 148 kph!

    Both of them really motivated one another too which was great to see.

    Take a bow, yorker kings.

    Knew that was going to be the plan when Harris came in to bowl the 14th over, but the execution was great to see nonetheless.

    Ridiculous that Harris hasn't played any domestic cricket yet.

    They love the line and length bowlers but select Wahab Riaz because there are too many more of the same bowlers in our test lineup.

    He did bowl a couple of hit me balls in the last match per over, but seems to have improved a lot. A bit more exposure and he could be a worthwhile investment. Maybe someone in the A Squad will get injured and he will be drafted.

    Rauf needs a bit of work on his action but otherwise looks pretty good.

    Rauf is a good prospect. Play him in BBL and he’ll greatly improve

    It was great to see both of them performing against two dangerous all rounders, on most days you expect Chris Morris to take his side home
    But the bowling was superb and really promising to see

    Some good prospects coming through now that we've actually bothered looking for them. If we had academies throughout the country, these kind of bowlers would be regulars.

    Gotta give credit to Aaqib and Fawad Rana. They have scouted some good talent.

    LQ doing some good work for Pak cricket. Faizan Raja is a Shady boy like prospect.

    Why on earth was SSA given an NOC for a league like this?

    Excellent performance from these two, particularly at the death. Great comeback from the first game.

    Why isn't Shaheen bowling yorkers as much? What exactly is Azhar teaching him to do at the death?

    And why isn't Rauf in the team? Pakistan desperately need someone who can take wickets with the new ball and who can bowl at the death. Rauf ticks both boxes.

    We really need Haris Rauf, Hasnain potential wise is ahead maybe, but match ready for tournament surely Rauf gets the nod???
