Profile

Mitchell Starc – a name that blows fear into the hearts of modern batsmen. It is tough to fathom that the tall, skinny lad from Sydney, who was once an aspiring wicketkeeper in junior cricket, would one day come to be the most startling sight for the world’s best batsmen. 

A tall, lanky 14-year-old was spotted by a club coach testing as a wicketkeeper for the Western Suburbs.

He grabbed the young man aside and urge that he ditch the wicketkeeping mitts – and that he would instruct him how to bowl.

The AFL’s fabled method of scouting a body type and installing a particular skill around it appeared to be at work again, as it tends to work in favor of the player’s capacity and aptitude.

He was born to a fast-bowler-turned-farmer, Mohammed Shami’s father spotted only one of his five children (all aspiring fast bowlers) and brought him to a prominent coach in Moradabad, the closest city to their village.

In a game full of wonderful uncertainties, few are known for ethical reasons while a few are accentuated for all the wrong reasons.

Olly Robinson is unusual; he is known for either of them. The stepson of Paul Farbrace – England’s assistant coach for a big-time – Ollie Robinson won an agreement with Yorkshire before the start of the 2013 English season and was affected immediately by his dead bowling skills in white-ball cricket. 

Ollie claimed 46 wickets in his debut season that encompassed a 6 for 33 against Warwickshire at Hove, and his normal ability to bowl off-spin made him a practical asset at Sussex.

Ollie’s bag of tricks includes seam-bowling, a mixture of slower balls, off-spin, and is a true fit for power-hitting in the lower-middle order.

A fiery Pat Cummins establish the international arena ablaze with his Test debut in 2011 on a juicy Wanderers pitch.

A seven-wicket match haul including a six-for in the second innings gave Australia a chaseable score which they eventually gunned down, albeit by a narrow margin.

Amidst the victory celebrations, the talk was all about this exciting fast bowler who had all the weapons a pacer required.

He was impeccably perfect, that too at such an initial age which vowed so much. He comes in the record for most wickets in the world test championship.

Pat Cummins’ has no physical weakness in his skill set but a hazardous body meant that he couldn’t capitalize on the extraordinary debut that he had. 

Although he did feature in white-ball cricket during this Test hiatus, there too he wasn’t a normal starter with injuries certainly consuming him at frequent intervals.

It did seem like such a powerhouse of talent would end up combusting in the blaze of injuries. Regardless, the 2016-17 season saw Cummins upping his talent levels in a big way. After a few years of consistent preparation, it seems like the body was finally commencing to be stable.

It’s generally the young tearaway pacers that make captions solely for their fiery speed and deterring bouncer.

Kagiso Rabada is as tight as it gets to an ‘excellent combination’. So when 20-year-old Kagiso Rabada gave rise to his debut against India in November 2015, the common consensus was the usual.

What followed was a stunning surprise for the South African team – a miracle who assured them with his performances that the fortune of the nation’s fast bowling was in big hands.

The world already understands what Kagiso Rabada is capable of and the World Cup is barely a stage to further strengthen the growing reputation. Rabada is South Africa’s – guide bowler, torchbearer, and expect giver in this tournament.

They have fallen short at knockout stages, they have plunged short in a semifinal and Rabada is here to rewrite all that and give rise to a new dawn in South African cricket.

He doesn’t carry the burden of the c-word nor was he part of failed previous campaigns. In fact, he was the leading wicket-taker for his country when they earned the U-19 World Cup.

Born on November 20, 1987, Nathan Lyon commenced his career as a member of the ground-staff team at the Adelaide Oval after graduating from a 4-year apprenticeship at the Manuka Oval in Canberra. 

His off-breaks caught the eyes of South Australia’s Big Bash trainer, Darren Berry, and was enrolled into the Redbacks T20 team in 2010-11.

After instilling in the T20s, Lyon went on to affect South Australia in the Sheffield Shield and the household one-day competition. His fast surge saw him get assigned for the ‘A’ tour of Zimbabwe in 2011 where he ended with 11 wickets in the tri-series to attain the Man of the Series award.

There is no rejecting the fact that Shaheen Afridi’s potential is amazingly infinite. Blessed with a long gangling frame and the capacity to bowl really fast, Afridi also likes his outstanding namesake and can strike the ball really hard with the bat in hand.

Add to all this his variation as a left-arm bowler and you know why there is enormous excitement around this man in Pakistan.

Born in a gang of seven, Shaheen is the newest of the lot and arguably, the most qualified as well. He comes in a record for most wickets in the world test championship.

 Moreover, Despite being incredibly passionate about cricket from his childhood, he was mainly into tennis-ball cricket before being tutored into the real deal by his former brother Riaz, a one-Test wonder for Pakistan, who has also been Shaheen’s motivation and mentor. 

Shaheen also had a remarkable campaign in the 2019 World Cup, despite the fact of not playing all the games. He developed good pace and also doled out fine variations at the death, ending up with 16 wickets in the tourney.

Shaheen was one of the few shining lights who endured a disappointing competition otherwise. Although he gave rise to his Test debut at the start of 2019, it shall be delightful to see how the PCB and the team administration control his workload, given the teenager’s injury-prone nature.

In an Indian team desperately surveying for a death overs bowler, Jasprit Bumrah came to the lead through the Indian Premier League, as a blessing for cricket in the country.

The scantily-built pacer from Gujarat has organized to refine the art of bowling inch-perfect yorkers as an understudy to Lasith Malinga as a part of the Mumbai Indians franchise and has grown into an indispensable asset for the Indian team in the limited-overs format. 

He has indicated appetite and ability for red-ball cricket, bowling Gujarat to their maiden Ranji Trophy title, in 2016-17. Though, the Kookaburra ball posed a fundamentally new challenge.

He was given the elusive Test cap in January 2018 in South Africa, and exhibited his adaptability with his skiddy nippers and uncertain scrambled-seamers, verifying to be the find of the tour for India

In other words, a good onset in Tests for the versatile Bumrah. He comes in the record for most wickets in the world test championship.
