The revamped structure of the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy saw batting-friendly pitches prepared for the 2019 edition of the tournament. The slow surfaces thus aided spinners this season, contrary to the previous trend of pace bowlers thriving in the seam-friendly conditions.
Seven of the top 10 wicket-takers in the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy were spinners, exemplifying a wealth of spin bowling talent in the country. Northern captain Nauman Ali stood out for his exceptional consistency throughout the season as he finished with 54 wickets in the tournament.
The second and third spots in the distinguished list were occupied by Central Punjab spin duo Bilal Asif and Zafar Gohar, who received the player of the tournament prize.
Balochistan’s Mohammad Asghar and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s Sajid Khan also wreaked havoc on oppositions and were ranked fourth and fifth respectively in the bowling charts.
