The fourth edition of the Pakistan Super League has been a breath of fresh air for cricket fans who had grown accustomed to witnessing the famed fast-bowling conveyor belt of Pakistan producing one world-class pacer after the other.
Lahore Qalandars fast bowler Haris Rauf has hogged the limelight with his consistently quick spells and toe-crushing yorkers. He had already started to create a buzz when he bowled to the Indian team during the latter’s recent Test tour in Australia.
Then there is Islamabad United’s Muhammad Musa, 18, whose round-arm action and extreme pace have turned quite a few heads.
And the latest entrant to the list of young and promising Pakistan quicks is Quetta Gladiators’ 18-year-old Mohammad Hasnain.
The right-arm pacer set the stage alight by clocking 151kph against Multan Sultans. That was the first delivery in PSL 2019 to be clocked above the 150kph mark.
Not only that, he was consistently clocked at well above 140kph in the two games he has played so far, which means he can sustain the pace for longer periods.
The emergence of these three quicks has given Pakistan seniors like Shoaib Malik a lot of confidence.
“We have some good bowling talent. All three bowlers – Musa, Rauf and Hasnain –  have a lot of strength and they can bowl consistently at high pace. It is not the case where they bowl only a few balls at 140 plus and then their pace drops,” Malik said.
