Next Shoaib Akhtar

The Next Shoaib Akhtar is here

The Speed star “Shoaib Akhtar” has been the quickest bowler in world cricket since a long time but now there is someone new in town who can be the next Shoaib Akhtar. He is certainly QUICK. Well, the quickest in Pakistan.

Pakistan Cricket has been producing some amazing cricketing talent over the years. especially in the bowling department, Pakistan has produced some of the finest bowlers such as Imran Khan, Kadir Khan, Sarfraz Nawaz, Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis, Saqlain Mushtaq, Saeed Ajmal, Shoaib Akhtar, and many others. One special highlight of Pakistani bowlers is their unusual talents sometimes in the same of their bowling actions, sometimes they have an unusual “Dosra”, some invented “Reverse Swing” in death overs or some with an express bowling speed of (100mph) or 161.3kph. There is simply no denying that over the past 5 decades Pakistan has given some of the masters of a cricket ball to the world cricket. Whenever there will be a discussion on Pace bowling or speed of delivery one name will always pop up in your mind and that is the “Rawalpindi express” Shoaib Akhtar. He stunning the world with his super speed of delivering cricket ball and setting up a record of 162 kph which is yet to be broken. His career saw ups and downs featuring quite a few controversies as well but he surely had an impact on World cricket with his brutal fast pace bowling. Since Shoaib left the playing field in ICC World Cup 2011 under Shahid Afridi’s Captaincy.

Shoaib Akhtar’s Bowling stats.

While Akhtar was dubbed to be the coolest bad boy in Cricket he was also known for his fancy dressing and aggressive attitude just like his bowling. Some in the media also called him “DON OF CRICKET” due to his bad boy image which grew due to his style and the controversies he found him self in. Shoaib Akhtar will glow as a bright star in Pakistan cricket’s glorious history but he is part of the history now. so whats Next. Well recently during the PSL (Pakistan Super League), Pakistan’s own cricketing league featuring their raw cricketing talent. Quetta Gladiators played a special Player named Muhammad Hassnain. He came under spot light when he bowled some really fast stuff to the international players during his PSL matches.


Mohammad Husnain just 18 years of age played form Team “Quetta Gladiators” (QG) during PSL 2019 edition and stunned the cricket world by world at an express pace. He consistently bowls around 150 kph mark. With his express fast pace, he is able to trouble one of the finest batsmen in the circuit.

Husnain was bowling so quick in UAE that everyone was forced to think that if he could bowl so fast in such dry and dead conditions then how would he bowl in England conditions. Eyeing a future star in the form of Mohammad Husnain Pakistan Cricket Board decided picked him up for the next series against Australia and he was included into Pakistan’s ODI team straight away. With ICC Worldcup just around the corner, it is a good move on PCB behalf and may well be the defining moment of this youngster’s career. Though PSL and this Pakistan vs Australia Series is being played in UAE where pitches are not supportive of Pace bowling. Husnain has a tough castle to conquer in order to get himself included in WorldCup 2019 which is scheduled this year in England and Wales. It is always an added benefit of having someone in the dressing room who is capable of delivering bouncer at 150 clicks. Husnain is surely another positive Pakistan has taken out of their cricket League (PSL). Husnain has the pace needed but only time will tell what will he be able to create magic like the speed star Shoaib and match his persona and charisma on the field and off the field.
