    Bumrah and Shami are around 5’9, 5’10 but that didnt prevent them to succeed at test level. Its aboult the about the ability to hit the right lengths and skills one has.

    Conditions are suitable for swing bowling. But i am not sure these bowlers are genuine swing bowlers. One is line and length bowler who tries to move off the seam. Other two look like back of the length bowlers. They hit the pitch hard.

    Musa shouldn't have been selected for this format.

    First Misbah picked Imran Khan with an average of 45+ this season and then Musa with an average of 37.52. It's pathetic to debut a young player in a format he's never found success in.

    Jason Gillespie on ABC Radio is being absolutely dismissive of Musa.

    “Repeatable action but very short, and he bowls with a bent knee and is bowling far too short for the conditions. I don’t see what makes anyone think he is ready for Test cricket”:

    In last Test, regarding why Imran & why not Abbas, I actually wrote that, on that Gabba track, had Abbas played, may be we could have seen Rizwan’s brilliance with gloves, standing on wicket against a fast bowler ...... but didn’t think that I’ll see it at Adelaide, in pink ball Test .... that too on first day, before lunch.... well done, Rizwan.

    He’s bowling 6 feet too short. Worst quick bowling I’ve ever seen in Australia. Ever.

    Rizwan actually is a pretty decent keeper. He is pretty safe and can sometimes take really good catches or blinders as well so not surprised with his reflexes and athleticism him standing up.

    Musa resembles those afghanis who can bowl thunderbolts but don't know how to use them effectively. Not a test cricket material.

    This kid is too short to play test, could be a good odi/t20 bowler.
    Hasnain would have been better , if naseem was unfit.

    Yeah I think he’s as good as BJ Watling and Shane Dowrich. Saha is the best rn though.

    Musa Khan releasing the pressure made by Abbas and Shaheen. You can tell Musa Khan is bowler is aggressive but one major issue he has is he's always trying to impress/ intimidate the batsman with bowling bouncers all the time. I noticed this in that one t20 he played and now and that's why he keeps bowling short and gets smashed, he will struggle more with his short height. And Brett Lee did a good analysis and talked about how Musa Khan bends his front leg in release which causes him to lose some pace, although his pace has been decent.

    Given his first-class records, he is not even first-class ready. WHat happened to guys like Raees, Shinwari?

    With his action and height (I read some where between 5’6”, to 5’9”.... I tend to remain at lower limit - task for you Doc. - if you meet him in loony, please do cross check ... and do consider the heel), if he tries to bowl on good length, it’ll be a juicy roshgolla (a Bengali sweetmeat), for hitting on the rise, squire, at Adelaide. This one I have to say was a pick to fail the kid - he never had much of a chance here.

    Poor bowling till now I agree but worst quick bowling is bit of an extra exaggeration. He is inexperienced in FC cricket let alone test cricket. Accuracy and channel bowling develops with time.

    I agreed with you regarding Ehsan Adil as he is definitely one of the most improved bowler in last couple of years, can now bowl around 140kph and has really good height as well along with experience of FC.
