Lahore Qalandars when claim that they have got some good young bowlers in their hutch they are not joking at all. Lahore Qalandars courtesy to its talent hunting camps have got some seriously good pacers in the camp. Haris Rauf is one of them. Haris was a tape ball bowler and about a year ago he started bowling with the red and white ball. He has a name in Pakistan tape ball cricket. Now Haris has made a name for himself internationally because he emerged as one of the fastest bowlers we have seen in recent times. Haris clocks around 150 kmph and in cricket this is some serious pace that we are talking about. Haris played in the recent Abu Dhabi T10 League. Some good sides from around the world played in this event. Lahore Qalandars were the best of them and eventually won the final as well. Imran Nazir played a couple of games which was a good thing for him as well. Abdul Razzaq was there in the playing eleven as well. So it was a strong Lahore side.
In the final Haris Rauf bowled a fantastic spell of bowling. Lahore Qalandars were playing against the Titans which we all know is one of the best sides in South African T20 cricketing circuits. Lahore Qalandars made 148 runs while batting first. Now this is not a strong total in a t20 game. Sohail hit a fifty at the top. He is definitely a solid hitter of the cricket ball and we have seen him smacking the ball in this event as well. He was the only batsman in the event who scored a ton and that happened in the first game of the tournament. Now it was all up to the bowling of Lahore Qalandars. Defending a total like 148 the bowlers had to produce something special. Lahore Qalandars bowling unit did produce an extra ordinary bowling effort and on top it was Shaheen Shah Afridi and then Haris Rauf.
The opening spell from the two was brilliant and it set the tone for the rest of the bowling side. There was no way Haris could have let this opportunity gone begging. He knew that to move forward he has to perform in these games. He did that and in the final he produced one of the best bowling. The best part about his bowling is that he can bowl a series of yorkers and bouncers. The accuracy that he has got bowling yorkers is exceptional. This is what he has learnt from tape ball cricket, the yorkers. Tape ball cricket is all about yorkers. You cannot escape from being hit for a six unless you are a specialist in bowling yorkers all the time in tape ball cricket. Haris bowled some really good yorkers and on the last ball of the game he was able to take the timber down as well. He is definitely a great find in Pakistan cricket.
