PSL is one of the most popular cricket league in the world and the quality of bowling in the tournament is what makes this league so special.
Cricketing legends all around the world sang their praises after seeing so much bowling talent in the local bowlers. The one thing that surprised them the most was the fact that every youngster that gets in the side has a pace of more or less 140-145km/h.
Despite the pace of these bowlers, some crack under the pressure that death over brings but some make the most out of the situation and become the hero of the match.
Here are the 3 most disciplined and the 3 most undisciplined bowlers in the death overs.
1)Hasan Ali (disciplined):
Islamabad United’s Hasan Ali who played the previous seasons with Peshawar Zalmi is one of the most trustworthy bowlers in the team. He always gets the job done whether he’s given the responsibility of bowling with the new ball or given an old one. When bowling death overs, his usage of a mixture of slower balls, bouncers, yorkers, and slower bouncers confuses the batsmen and restricts them from causing much damage.
1)Usman Shinwari (undisciplined):
Usman Shinwari has now played for 3 different franchises in the PSL but his consistency has always been his biggest problem. He has made a habit of bowling no-balls in pressure situations which costs his side which results in the captain losing his trust in him.
2)Mohammad Amir (disciplined):
Playing for Karachi Kings for the past 6 seasons, Mohammad Amir is their most experienced and valuable asset in bowling. Using his experience and his special talent of bowling in and out swings, bowling in death overs becomes rather easier for him. With the addition of Yorkers and slower ones in his skillset, it makes him a complete package.
2)Haris Rauf (undisciplined)
Lahore Qalandars’ find Haris Rauf is an excellent bowler with a pace that not many others can bowl at makes him a prodigy for Pakistan and Qalandars. The only downside of his bowling is his unpredictability. Giving away extras and bowling full tosses cost him a lot in death overs.
3)Shaheen Afridi (disciplined)
Right now Shaheen Shah Afridi is Pakistan’s most important bowler and his skill of bowling death overs with pure class makes him more dangerous. Even though he’s still young and has a lot to learn, he has achieved what most of the bowlers could only imagine.
3)Mohammad Hasnain (undisciplined):
Quetta Gladiators’ Mohammad Hasnain is one of the fastest bowler in the world. Capable of bowling at 150km/h, Mohammad Hasnain just couldn’t quite control his line and length yet. With the pace he possesses, this is expected from him but he will have to learn very fast because of the competition he has.
Honorary mentions (disciplined and undisciplined):
Sohail Tanvir and Wahab Riaz are the perfect examples of trustworthy and untrustworthy bowlers at the same time. Sohail Tanvir who’s regarded as a T20 specialist has produced some of the best performances in T20i history but time after time he loses his form and loses his place in the team.
Wahab Riaz is another one who’s the captain of Peshawar Zalmi proves again and again why he is so valuable but the same for him as he loses his line and length and then starts to bowl wides and no-balls which heavily costs the team.
