Nasir Khan, fast bowler from Peshawar, The Peshawar Express

Nasir Khan is a left arm fast bowler from Peshawar. He is absolutely expressive and is often referred to as The Peshawar Express. Shoaib Akhtar is his ideal and as per Nasir he has tried to copy him in all the domains as a bowler. He wants to bowl like him.

Nasir here is seen bowling to some big names in Pakistan cricket in the nets. We can see that he has got some serious pace. He bowls with an attacking line and length and makes sure that no batsman hits him for a shot. Now that is some good bowling skills shown from this man.

First he is seen bowling to the likes of Abdul Razzaq. Now that was an impressive show to start the bowling practice session for Nasir. The ball was bowled at a short bit of length. It was bowled at the line of the middle stump and Razzaq could only defend this one.

The next ball to Razzaq was almost like the first one. Again Razzaq defended it pretty easily onto his back foot. Next up he bowls against Mohammad Yousuf. The very elegant Mohammad Yousuf. The Pakistani muddle order batter pushed this ball from Nasir on the off side.

The ball was not there to be driven or cut. It was that perfect length which can only be pushed on the off side. Yousuf did the same. He knew that he cannot do much about this ball hence he just pushed it on the off side with minimal use of his feet.

This did not get over. Next comes Kamran Akmal and Nasir started bowling at him. Nasir has a pretty smooth run up and there is nothing fussy about his bowling action as well. He runs in and delivers the ball with all the power. The line and length has been impressive from him here. This is some good quality bowling from the young man.

Nasir definitely is making an impression here. He is quick and he knows his game really well. Nasir definitely has a future. The selectors should give him a chance to deliver. There is a lot of talent in Pakistan. People have the skills to become good players. All they need is proper guidance and training. If they get the two then many players will come into international cricket from Pakistan. Left hand fast bowlers are always dangerous. All they need is to know the tricks with which they can hit the ball in the right area and made sure they take wickets.
