Multan Sultans bowling coach, Azhar Mahmood, believes that young pace sensation, Shahnawaz Dahani, is not a complete bowler yet and has a lot to learn. Azhar said that Dahani has a bright future ahead of him and has the potential to be one of the best bowlers in the world.
Former all-rounder believes that Dahani has to work hard on being consistent with his line and length and needs to learn to pitch the ball up to get more success. He said that Dahani bowls at a very fast pace but can be inconsistent with his line and length sometimes.
Azhar praised the attitude of the youngster and said that his presence in the dressing room raised the spirits of Multan Sultans. He said that Dahani’s energy and his willingness to learn is a great sign for the future of Pakistan.
The 46-year old also pointed Dahani’s best bowling quality.
“One of the best qualities about Dahani’s bowling is that he can bowl inswing which is essential if you wish to take wickets. Outswing may be pleasant to the eye but remember it’s the inswing that will get you more wickets as it gives the bowler many more ways of getting a batsman out. So Dahani has to work on variations in his bowling, but he is improving very quickly,” Azhar said.
Former national team bowling coach compared Dahani’s to former pacer Shoaib Akhtar. Azhar said that Dahani’s personality, attitude, and bowling pace are similar to Shoaib Akhtar, but Pakistan management will need to work hard to bring the best out of Dahani.
