Beware batsmen around the world. Buckle up. Get your guards. Put on the helmet. Prepare yourself for an upcoming challenge. Get ready to feel the pace of the ball. You are going to experience shivers down your spine. Look out for steep bounce and just stay close to the stumps. It’ll be a matter of milliseconds to decide whether to duck the bouncer or a get a top edge off your bat. This will surely send down thunderbolts while unsettling you at the crease.

For all the spectators, the wait is over. It is time for the emergence of another speed star in world cricket. Mohammad Hasnain – the 19-year-old kid is all set to leave a mark in history books, this summer. He is not only quick but super quick. He is fast. He is destructive. He is the game changer. Do not get surprised in case this lad gives you Goosebumps.

Pakistan cricket team has just got another pacer in their blowing lineup. However, this is nothing new for them as it has been a tradition for this nation yielding the greats of Fazal Mahmood, Imran Khan, Sarfraz Nawaz, Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis, Shoaib Akhtar, etc.

Can Mohammad Hasnain deliver as a genuine fast bowler in the 2019 ICC cricket world cup just what Inzamam-ul-Haq did as an aggressive batsman in 1992? Imran Khan, the current Prime Minister of Pakistan, picked Inzamam and put his entire confidence behind him throughout that tournament. As a result, Inzi performed his best when it was required the most i.e. the knockout stage. Will Sarfaraz Ahmed do the same?

Belonging to the city of Hyderabad, Mohammad Hasnain has the ability to get people excited through his sheer pace. He is the first-ever in fast bowling genre from that region as Hyderabad had never produced such raw talent in pace bowling before. He is just in his teenage at-the-moment but can clock over 90mph. Hence, watch out for speedy deliveries coming out of his hand during this world cup.

Hasnain started his cricket journey from the regional under-16 side. In his early days, he was a companion of Shaheen Shah Afridi – another gem in Pakistan cricket team. The journey from the tour of Australia in 2015 to under-19 Asia Cup 2016 was the highlight of his career beginning. A die-heart cricket fan can see the glimpse of legendary Waqar Younis in Mohammad Hasnain.

The legendary Australian cricketer – Steve Waugh – has already foreseen a future star in Mohammad Hasnain who will turn heads in near future. Nowadays, cricket is a batsman game; however, the sheer speed and pace from a genuine fast bowler always matter.

Mohammad Hasnain, unlike other fast bowlers, does not have long hairs, sledging attitude, threatening face or forearm tattoos. His sparkling eyes, smiling face and down to earth outlook are surely the signs of greatness that every legendary cricket player possesses. The tall and slippery youngster, who used to play tape ball cricket in his childhood, is now geared up to showcase his talent at the biggest event of the cricketing world.

Pakistan cricket team needs something special and extraordinary to beat the odds in 2019 ICC cricket world cup. There has to be a surprise package that can disturb all the plans made by opposing teams during the tournament. Mohammad Hasnain, for sure, can be that X-factor for green shirts that can uplift the entire team’s morale in tough times ahead.

In his first ever PSL match, Mohammad Hasnain consistently bowled at 145kph+ speed. After that,in front of a crowd of 32 thousand and millions around the world watching, he got the man of the match award by taking 3 crucial wickets in 2019 PSL Final.

Hello cricketing world, get prepared for a surprise package from green shirts. The Hyderabad’s pacer can prove to be a game changer for green shirts in the mega event. Idealizing Waqar Younis – the toe crusher, Mohammad Hasnain is ready to take off his international career at the major cricket event in a few days.

Steve Waugh, Nasser Hussein, Shane Watson, and Waqar Younis, the world cricket giants across the globe, are already in praise of his serious pace. The latest pace sensation, Mohammad Hasnain, is the talk of the town. The pacer has the ingredients to trouble any batsman particularly with his accurate bouncers and deadly yorkers. Having a good height of more than 6 ft, the right arm fast bowler is already into the headlines of world cricket.

Pakistan cricket team always plays their best cricket whenever they unleash their aggressive game. The men in green will have to go for wicket-taking options, like Hasnain, in their bowling line-up rather than relying on defensive economical bowlers.

Green shirts will rely heavily on Shaheen Shah Afridi and Mohammad Hasnain during the tournament as both are capable of bowling around 90mph. No matter what modern day cricket offers to bowlers, one cannot rule out the importance of having a pacer in the team who can consistently bowl 145kph+. Batsmen can win matches for you, but bowlers can win the tournaments.

The 21st-century teen has so far just played 2 First-class matches, 6 List A games, and 9 T20s. His international career consists of only 5 ODIs and a single T20I. With international debut a few months ago, he is now all set to step into world’s biggest sports event this year.

1992’s Inzamam has picked 2019’s Inzamam – Mohammad Hasnain – hoping for a similar performance against tough opponents during the mega event.

A bowling spell of just 2-3 overs can prove to be the game changer in the most important matches during the tournament. Wickets of destructive batsmen – Virat Kohli, Jos Buttler, David Miller, Colin Munro, Glenn Maxwell, etc. – at the crucial times will matter the most. But, will Sarfaraz trust the lad during such tough times?

With cricket world cup around the corner, the 151kph youngster wants to put a mark by taking his team to the victory stand.
