hmmm, could he be the answer of our allrounder problem?
 
impressive stats. I mean a HS of 225 inside 13 FC matches with a bowling average under 30 should definitely to be looked on for future .
 
speaking of all rounders Imad Wasim is having a dream season though would like to see him play against department to make a better call.

I think there are lots of spin All-rounders already, we desperately need a decent fast bowling AR
 
Very promising.

We need someone exactly like him.

Want to see him first though.
 
good to see a young all rounder. PCB needs to bring him to their pool of young players for future. should give him an A team tour as welll
 
Ehsan Adil could be someone that PCB should look into for developing future players. he has an ability to pick up wickets and he is not the worst with the bat either. he is only 20 years and could be a good potential if he can focus on his batting. he is not 145kph bowler but his line and length is good probably thats what we need at this stage to have a bowler who can bowl decent over and can bat a bit. There are no genuine all rounders for national team so they will need to develop some.
 
those stats are a little eye catching, although theres probably not enough of them yet to draw much conviction. they look promising though - best of luck to him in maintaining or improving them.
 
Pakistan need to groom these kind of all rounders.

Just selecting random players will not help.

Groom Adil , Bilawal and Hamad.
 
Imad Wasim is playing like Garfield Sobers in this substandard tourney unless you play for a department these performances have little value.

Yes i know that, but still there arent many fast bowling all-rounders going around in Pakisan and Amir yamin is certainly someone to keep an eye on


Imad wasim is a spin bowling AR, and we have a lot of them going around, so that is why i am not too excited about him
 
Stats can be very misleading. Until someone on the board can say they have seen him, this is a pointless discussion.

I have seen him bowl, but haven't seen him bat, i think his pace is around 85mph, he clocked 137kph in PCB pace competetion, Haven't seen him bat, but looks to be in super batting form

You haven't seen him bat, so how do you know he's a proper, genuine allrounder?

Does he have a nice action, does he move the ball?
 
2 things


First he seems to be a batsman who can turn his arm over bit an allrounder

Second, bulk of his cricket is in 2nd division, take that with a grain of salt. The likes if Usman Salahudin did great there and failed in 1st Div

Yes you are right, the purpose of this thread is to keep an eye on the youngster

From what i have seen he is a proper bowler who bowls in mid 130s, which can be handy if he is decent with the bat, we seriously lack a proper fast bowling all-rounder in our Limited over teams, may be amir yamin is the answer, i hope he gets a contract with Departmental side next year
 
This guys has pace for sure but hes not tall enough , not impressed by his bowling though seems more of a run and gun bowler dunno about his batting.
 
The guy has played 25 FC matches and has hit 3 hundreds and 3 fifties, whilst picking up 58 wkts.

Solid alternate option as the pace bowling A/R, with Hammad out due to injury.
 
Havent seen him bat, but have seen him bowl and he's a skiddy bowler who also got to the Final stages of PAce competetion which Ahmed Jamal won

Skiddy bowler usually means short. Still if he can bat he might be useful in limited overs.
 
I saw his short stincts at crease in last two matches in 4th corporate t20 tournament but he was really impressive . Today the ball stayed too low and the bowler yousuf is a sure shot chucker .
Aamir yamin his technique , stance , footwork , bat flow , power game , range of shots much much better than bilawal bhatti , hammad azam & anwar Ali .
In bowling his pace is equivalent to anwar ali but he bowls good Yorkers , bowls well in death overs and seams the ball like razzaq used to do . Doesn't swing but seams the deliveries .
He opened in Quaid e azam trophy with the bat and got a fifty .
Must to look out for . Better choice than anwar Ali , bilawal bhatti and hammad azam . Not a world beater but a good allrounder .
 
His pace is definitely better than Anwar Ali I remember him clocking 136k in pace competition where you only get to bowl 3 deliveries I am sure he can crank up to 140k , but he doesnt get enough bounce due to his short stature.
 
His pace is i think same like Anwar Ali, but yes his is good with yorkers, his death bowling is well. And his batting is good enough
 
now i hope selectors select him for pakistan A
 
Batted beautifully today. Proper shots and took an impossible game to the end
 
I hope he's not another Bilawal Bhatti. A fast bowling allrounder is a mouthwatering prospect in Tests.
 
Has been selected for Zimbabwe T20s.

That's what he wrote on his FB fanpage in April :

Im running on sand bowling with heavy ball to increase my bowling speed i request u all to make dua for me soon i will be bowling at 140kph plus with good shape
 
he is equally good with bat and ball but i think he needs to improve on his line and length
 
Surely everyone will be thinking him to be the next Abdul Razzaq... Should be given proper chances
 
The short of a good length area seems to be his fav place to put the ball. His line has been alot better compared to Anwar Ali as well which allows him to be economical.

His pace is somewhere in between 83-86 mph.
 
He's short and not particularly pacey ... control seems decent.
 
What a poor bowler.

Anwar Ali atleast has a head on his shoulders. Mixes it up a bit.

Why is this overrated trundler even in our side?

Has good control and can be economical and bowl all 10 overs. Hes a proper batsman. Better bat than anwar ali and a good guy to have at number 8. Cam be a better allrounder than anwar
 
First impression guys? How is he?

I haven't been able to see the match unfortunately.
 
It's hard to say anything about his bowling. He just bowled, nothing good or bad. In other words, nothing to discuss here.

Unlikely to keep his place in the team after Anwar Ali recovers from injury, so he should play the remaining two matches as well.
 
Interesting. I hear that he bats a bit as well?

So, he could be the fast bowling A/R we are looking for?

not sure, will get hammered by hales and co. bowled some rubbish that wasnt hit to the boudary by the Zim chaps..
 
I think we can all agree that if he isn't a demon with the bat then he is not international quality based on his bowling alone !

Reminds me of that trundler who played against WI in 2013. Asad Ali or something like that. just an innocuos bowler who runs up and puts it on a spot. Will have to judge his batting to say if he is viable all rounder at this level.

He is basically selected because Waqar liked him.

I think Azhar made a mistake. HE should have given Yamin more overs towards the end so he could pick up a few wickets.

He is almost a genuine batsman, and much better at batting than any of our Pace ARs. Bowling wise i would say all are same
 
His batting is more stronger suit.

I think Pak needs a batting fast-bowling A/R so he might be what we need, but I guess we need to give him more games, before making a decision.

By the way, I am very impressed with Imad Wasim, do we even need a fast bowling A/R?
 
jesus! people forming opinions after 1 bowling spell on whether hes good or not, give players time to atleast adapt to highest level and see if they can sink or swim.
 
Only if all these simpleton Pak fan could have seen Imran in his first few games and up until 1975, they would have kicked him out as well and we would now be sitting here discussing why that trundler ever played for Pak back then; sifarsh.i maybe?

Waqar and Co. must have seen something we definietly have not and are worse of a judge of talent than them as well, to have played him in the XI. Give him a few games and see how he comes along. Not long ago, people were asking for Anwar Ali and Imad Waseem's heads as well till they each won us a game or two!

If you want to get a new player comfortable enough in the team, you got to let them play 4-5 games at least to judge them. After all there must be something he has done to have such a solid record at FC and eventually got picked!

Who is better Hammad Azam or Aamer Yamin?

Although I guess the sample is too small for both.

I think he'should better than azam. He can seam the ball and will hopefully cut out the bad balls. Could be useful. But not pacy.
 
He was accurate and skiddy! And attacks the stumps most of the time! Which is a good quality! And also was a bit clever as well, by bowling some slower deliveries which confused the batsmen!

I am impressed!

Pakistan needs a bowling all rounder or Bowlers who can bat a bit.

Weakining the bowling is not the solution.

Depends on the role we want to give to the supposed to be AR

In future

7. Imad
8. Anwar/Yamin
9. Wahab
10. Aamer
11. Yasir

We get a good balanced attack and good depth in batting

Bowling options: Aamer, Wahab, Yasir, Imad, Yamin/Anwar, Malik, Azhar Ali

This is a well rounded attack specially in Overseas conditions. In Sub continent we could play Bilal Asif in place of Yamin/Anwar

Looking at the ongoing Zimbo match, I think he should indeed be more judged as a batting allrounder than a "fast bowling" one.
 
what does he have to do to at least get a game ( or how bad does anwar have to be to get dropped)


Only thing that keeps anwar in the side is his batting and it is clear that Yameen is better in that regard

mind bogling decision if Yameen ends up the only person on tour not to get a game

Pls don't support him. You were in love with Anwar, and look how he turned out :(
