Pakistan is proudly referred to as the land of fast bowlers. Producing classy pacers throughout its cricketing history, Pakistan has always been in abundance of quality fast bowling stocks. This time around, Pakistan’s World Cup squad is once again lit up by the presence of exciting pacers, who can register high speeds in excess of 145 kph.
Looking forward to witnessing the young stars in the making in action, former England skipper Nasser Hussain compared the selection of Hasnain and Shaheen to that of Waqar Younis and Wasim Akram in the past.
“This is what Pakistan have always done from when Imran Khan picked Wasim & Waqar all those years ago. Pakistan always produces these players & the moment they play it's like wow these lads have got something about them,” he said.
The challenge in England and Wales next month, however, will be of prime importance and the stiffest the two would have faced in their respective budding careers. Nevertheless, this presents an opportunity for Hasnain and Shaheen to imprint their name in cricketing folklore.
