Fast Bowling Talent: Is He Better Than Muhammad Amir?

Pakistan is a heaven for fast bowling talent without any shred of doubt. From Imran Khan, Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis to the likes of Shoaib Akhtar and Muhammad Amir, the country has never been short of fast bowling prodigies. All the above mentioned fast bowlers went on to carving their names in the record books while there are many raw fast bowling talents who lurk in the dark. Granted, PCB does host yearly talent hunt programs to discover the new fasting bowling blood, there are many young and naturally talented fast bowlers in the streets who never make it to the stage where they could catch public attention. One such fast bowling is this Karachi-based guy who maintains a pretty good line and length.

While some might argue he is just an average guy out there but while browsing fast bowling talents on the web, it caught my eye. If properly trained, he can be the next Muhammad Amir or maybe better than him, who knows? I have noticed over the years that there are many tape-ball cricket talents both batsmen and bowling who never make it to the big stage either due to their own choices or no PCB's program to pick and choose the best batsmen and bowler playing cricket on street level cricket. To substantiate this, I bring Asad Shafiq as a case in point. The prolific and most compact Pakistani Test batsman made his way up from his tape-ball cricket circuit. He is a great example of tape-ball cricket talent in the country that largely remains neglected. It would be a wise thing for PCB to street hunting tape-ball talent as well.
