    1.) He does absolutely nothing with the ball . . with his action and wrist position upon release, its very difficult to move the ball . .
    2.) If you can't move the ball, then you need sheer pace . . He doesn't have that . . In fact, I think he is the slowest out of the 3 (hasnain, naseem and musa) . . he needs to be up at 150 if he needs to cause trouble
    3.) He doesn't have the height either so no kick from the length . . it will always just skid on to the bat . .

    So, at best he can MAYBE be decent in T20 (i have my doubts there too), but there's no way he can be a decent ODI or test bowler with his current skill set . . Having said that, I hope he improves and adds those skills and I'd love to see him successful . . For now, I don't see it happening

    I wouldnt start doing bhangra over Musa yet. As a midget, hes bound to do better on these wickets than high bounce one like Aus or SA.

    Plus international cricket is a completely different beast to tamasha leagues.

    Musa is clearly not suitable for Test cricket. Fine for LOI cricket, provided he improves more so here-on.

    I personally am excited about the 140+ KPH pacers we suddenly have.

    He isnt a finished product and what he will become totally depends on the hardwork he puts in. I agree with the limitations you have mentioned but his accuracy and movement can be improved.

    A young 19-20 year old pacer who can ball around 145kph and skids the ball will be considered a talent in any country of the world. Again talent doesnt necessarily means success unless a player is willing to put in hard yards.

    I am not saying he is a prodigy which is a word I have only used for Naseem and Shaheen neither I am predicting anything. I have only mentioned that he does have good skillset for his age but his career trajectory will be decided by how much he is willing to put in.

    Although I can never justify hating on anyone, it definitely is partly his fault. As someone benefiting off of nepotism, youre just as guilty as the person who helped you benefit off of it. Azam has the choice to say no to this offer, prove his credentials otherwise in the domestic circuit.

    Its a similar situation to if your dad was the CEO of Coke or some other big company and offered to give you a really high up job at the age of 20. You have the choice to say no and chart your own path.

    Nevertheless, I want to see Azam perform for his sake, less so because I actually think hes good. Getting the kinds of comments hes getting, not just about nepotism but also about his body, can be very difficult to mentally cope with whether or not they are true.

    Good. He deserves them.


    You're one microscopic cog in his catastrophic plan, designed and directed by his red right hand.
