    [VIDEO/PICTURES] Lahore Qalandars 'unearth' Malinga-style fast-bowler - Tayyab Abbas

    Pakistan Super League (PSL) franchise Lahore Qalandars has once again unearthed a special talent during their Player Development Program (PDP), which left Aaqib Javed, Sameen Rana, and Darren Gough all in disbelief.





    Tayyab Abbas, who appeared in the Qalandars' PDP, showcased his ability to bowl similarly to Sri Lanka's legendary unorthodox bowler Lasith Malinga.

    His 'slingy' action and ability to bowl 87mph despite having no formal training left former England pacer and Yorkshire Managing Director, Darren Gough in sheer disbelief.

    "He bowls 87mph in trainers with no spikes, doesn't really know how to hold the ball properly, and has no real stability when he lands but somehow gets the ball on the other end at 87mph - I mean, wow," said Darren Gough while speaking to the media.

    Former Pakistan pacer and PSL title-winning head coach, Aqib Javed, also stated that he too was impressed with Tayyab’s unique talent and he has the potential to become a real asset to the franchise.

    Hailing from Jhang, Tayyab has aspirations to change his fortunes as he currently works as a welder while his father owns a small bakery in the city.

    Speaking to the media, Tayyab also expressed his delight after being highlighted during the trials.

    "I have a dream to play for Lahore Qalandars and I have taken the first step by coming to the trials and going through with them," he said.

    I guess bit of gimmicks (Good way to market franchise as well) are going to go hand in hand with some inspiring talent however, credit to LQ for being so consistent with trials at such a large scale almost every other year barring Covid time where the scale was downsized.

    Regarding the guy, I think being able to ball with the style of Malinga and at good pace can create that initially surprise factor for some batsmen but, what many often overlook is the fact that Malinga was pretty skillful overall with the ball and the action just complemented that.

    So will have to see. Guy having unorthodox action, extraordinary hight or ability to bowl with both hands in isolation are not enough. Interesting to see him bowl in nets though, will see going forward where ends at.

    Darren Gough:

    “I was there quite a few hours and picked out a couple, although not purely myself.

    “I picked out one lad who had a Malinga style action. He hit the side net three times in five balls. But, on the speed gun, he made it up to 88 mph in trainers.

    “When they put spikes on him, he couldn’t let the ball go and kept bowling beamers. But he clearly had something they could work with.

    Sohail Khan was pretty quick.There is no proper system in Pakistan to develope players.Some fast bowlers are ignored when they are young.They get selected when they are over 30.Others are thrown at the deep end when very young and inexperienced eg Naseem Sha.
