Ihsanullah's cranky snorters have left players, as well as fans, in a curveball.
Former Pakistan cricketer, Ramiz Raja, has revealed a unique quality in Ihsanullah’s bowling, which makes him a dangerous opponent for batsmen all around the world.
Ihsanullah, a 20-year-old from Swat, made his international debut in the recently-concluded series against Afghanistan.
His induction into the national team was majorly based on his scorching performance in HBL PSL 8, where he was the second-highest wicket-taker with 22 wickets in his bag.
Like so many others, former chairman PCB hailed the new right-arm fast bowler in the national team and discovered the innate reason behind his lethal bowling that left one of Afghanistan's batsmen - Najibullah Zadran - injured.
"Ihsanullah is a great find. He is as tall as 6'5". He has long limbs; his action is pretty decent and repeatable. Ihsanullah's pace hits the wicket hard, but most importantly, what makes him unique and challenging from batting point of view is that his length cannot be judged whether he is going to deliver a good length or short ball - again because his body levers are long enough, in a good way. He equally delivers decent yorkers and bouncers, which makes him versatile.", Ramiz said.
The young blood recently is being compared with the veteran Shoaib Akhtar after his nasty bouncer to Zadran that wounded his chin. The legendary pacer took to Instagram, where he reminisced about his iconic mortal delivery to Brian Lara.
