Three Pakistani players who could do well in Big Bash League
Big Bash League is one of the best all-round entertaining leagues, now in its ninth edition (BBL09). The league is famous for picking, very carefully without auction, players from all over the cricket world. Pakistani players including Shahid Khan Afridi and Yasir Arafat have played for BBL in the past editions.
Hussain Talat is a middle-order batsman who usually bats at number three or four, and is one who tries to play till the 20th over. He’s strike rate is not very fiery but he’s one who can stabilize the innings by his good stroke play. He has been with the Islamabad United franchise in PSL for all three seasons and has impressed many by his style of play. His overall average in T20 is 34 and can come handy with his bowling having good variations and pace.
Ideal franchise: Brisbane Heat
Faheem Ashraf was added in the Pakistan squad as a batsman who can also do bowl. However, his recent performances mirror the fact that he’s a good first choice bowler in the T20 format. With his bowling action that angles the ball into the right-handed batsman and good pace, the choice to bowl him in the powerplay has borne fruit.
Ideal Franchise: Sydney Thunder
Fakhar is well known Pakistani left-arm opener batsman who scores a century in Champions trophy against India and received the man of the match award.
He is the kind of batsman who likes pace on the ball, in which case fast pitches suit him. Earlier this year, he made a good statement by playing beautifully in New Zealand. He has a good ability to play aggressively in the powerplay, with strong offside play. A healthy strike rate proves his worth as a T20 best opener batsman. The pitches of Australia can suit his batting style, and he can make runs very aggressively
He has a good overall strike rate of 140 in the T20 format with the highest of 91 against Australia in Three countries Final in Zimbabwe where he pulled his team Pakistan from a very bad situation.
Ideal Franchise: Perth Scorchers
