    Picked for the national squad. To think he wasn't even picked in the initial PSL draft.

    Crazy how quickly fortunes can change in Pakistan cricket...

    I think he replaced Naseem Shah.

    So if Naseem had been fit he could have made it to the Pak side instead of Hasnain.

    All about fate.

    Nothing to take away from Hasnain, but Naseem Shah would have had the entry that Amir had in international cricket had he played this PSL and made it to the national team. The lad bowls 145-154kph and swings it both ways

    Does it really matter ? As long as he is a Pakistani and not willing to move to Aus for a better career its all good I guess.

    How times change, there were days when the likes of Shoaib, Lee, Bond were clocking 150kph multiple times an over - now we are overjoyed at seeing a bowler reach 150 once in a whole tournament.. but then given the recent trend of 135kph ‘speedsters’ in Pakistan, can fully understand the excitement.

    No one in the world can currently clocks even in the early 150ks consistently, shoaib, Lee, Tait, Zahid were different breed.

    Talent Spotter : Mohammad Hasnain (Clocks 151kph at PSL)

    A seriously capable and talented youngster is Hasnain. Now that the PSL has concluded, here are the guys who Id like to mention have impressed me from amongst the emerging players.

    From amongst the batsmen, there were only two, Ahsan Ali (of Quetta) and Siddiq (of Multan). Both are good strikers of the ball and may come in handy in the national T20 team. Sohail Akhtar (of Lahore) is another but he has been there since a few seasons from what I remember and has blown hot and cold quite often in each edition.

    Hasnain(from Quetta) obviously, and Haris Rauf (from Lahore) are of course the fast bowlers who impressed the most. Im very inclined towards Haris because his discipline and control too has impressed me. Musa (from Islamabad) isnt bad either but he needs to be played a little more before we can say anything about him. Umer Khan (of Karachi) takes the prize from amongst the spinners, easily.

    So these are the players who I think can play for the national team one day, especially the bowlers that Ive mentioned.

    Yeah hitting 150+ is all that matters, shouldn't worry about such trivial things such as picking up wickets or containing the run scoring.

    I noticed that even at youth and lower levels of cricket, Hasnain doesn't have much of a wicket-taking record.

    There's a lot to work with, but he has a lot to learn.

    This. feel like we made a mistake in throwing him to deep end. Intl experience is one thing, he barely even has first class experience or A team experience. I would have taken Shinwari over him perhaps. Shinwari has been really hard done by , when they showed stats since 2017 he was our best bowler. at least we would then expect that if between Hassan, Shinwari, Wahab if each one has 1-2 outstanding spell days then you could perhaps win 5-6 games that way. with Hasnain I haven't got feeling he can take few wickets, or even do containing, he is all over the place and releases pressure every time.

    Actually speed is relevant when you cant swing, otherwise in todays cricket 83 mph bowlers will be smashed all over the world.

    If someone has speed and if he is 18 years old, fast track him and keep a special eye on him. I don't want another Mohd Zahid who was lost to the system.

    It’s not irrelevant. Genuine pace is a talent that can’t be taught
    Other skills you mention can be acquired obviously it’s another thing whether Hasnain will be able to acquire them or not

    Sami made a decade long career on the promise of learning other skills while possessing basic ingredient of pace. This lad seems to be another one from the same school of bowling.


    If other skills could be learnt every Tom, Dick or Harry would have been seaming and swinging the ball.

    Sami had genuine talent too. He even had swing too just lacked the temperament for international cricket

    Everyone can get fooled by amount of talent Sami had

    I never said Hasnain is a world beater or will become one but he definitely has genuine pace and needs to be provided all the possible facilities and coaching to go Waqar/Shoaib way rather than Sami. If he doesn’t improve we will know and can discard him but lots to work on for now

    As with most things the truth is somewhere in the middle and not at at the extremes.

    Pace is important. Always has been and will continue to be. Just like accuracy, ability to move the ball or ability to bowl at the death. Bowlers cant survive just by being good at one aspect. you need to master more than a few in order to be effective.You cant make it just by being quick , youll be tonked around,the same way an accurate bowler with no zip is going to get smashed around in modern cricket. do you think Steyn would have been this effective had he been bowling at 135 instead of 145 at his prime?..or Rabada ..or Starc.

    Im seriously stoked to see this teenager.. Bowling at over 90mph on average at 19 years of age is no joke. we are not talking about someone occasionally bowling a very fast ball, this is someone who is genuinely fast..Watson and Pollard were understandably impressed.. proper fitness training along with growth of muscle mass means it wouldnt be far fetched to assume he can be bowling at 150km/hr on average once hes 25. that is serious serious pace. Right alongside the likes of Lee, Akhtar and we know individuals with those ability come once or twice a generation at best.

    He obviously needs to learn to consistently pitch it in the right areas, develop a yorker, slower balls etc. Thats a no brainer...and once he does that, hed be lethal.

    I share the concern of some others who think hes been thrown into the deep end too soon. He will be bowling to formidable batting lineups almost every match on pitches where 350 is only a par score.. and he doesnt have the experience to bank on if hes taken to the cleaners. Worse still, none of his fellow ''senior'' bowling partners are there to support him. Amir, Hasan and Wahab are all clueless at the moment.
