Usman Arshad - Durham CC


Tape Ball Regular
Jul 12, 2013

20 years old Right arm seamer and a very handy lower order batsman

Iv been following county cricket and noticed Usmans been making some very good contributions to durham since his debut with bat and bowl, he's been one of the reason behind durhams county championship win

Almost every game he's taken 5-6 wickets and scored 40-50 runs down the order

Anyone on pakpassion got any further info on him?
Looks a good prospect. However, he has played most of his matches at the bowler friendly Chester Lee Street home ground. Would like to see him play more on away wickets to fully assess his calibre.
I see his bowling average has gone from a very healthy 10 to 15 now. Poor stuff.
Batting average has gone up too from 20 to 28

I was being sarcastic! Anyway, not many better places to learn seam and swing bowling than Chester le Street with Graham Onions. Durham have got a couple of very good young bowlers. Arshad, Wood, Harrison and Rushworth. I'd hazard that the former 2 could become Bresnan-like bowling allrounders for England.
