I can go to Bob Woolmer, and start this article as a failed dream that Kanpur born saw..
I can go to Under 19 world Cup final at Colombo, 19 February 2006, when a Pakistani teenage trio blew Indian batting apart for 71, to defend 109.
Or we can start with why Geoff Lawson, Dave Whatmore & other contenders for Pakistan coaching job are hungry for the green signal from PCB.. answer is Pakistan's pace bowling factory. Even the Aussies n the Proteas can't match the supremacy/Unplay-able-ity Pakistani fast bowlers reach, when at peak.. and there's plenty in storage. If Wasim Akram was accurate, Waqar Younis reverswinging. Shoaib Akhtar quick & Mohammad Asif is mysterious... following names of upcoming Pakistan cricket's fast bowlers (most of them can touch 90) will have other tags with them.
PakPassion is a very famous Pakistani cricket fan site, but I looked into the forum - idea was to find the inside talk between Pakistan cricket fans. Mercenary (a veteren poster on Pakpassion.net) has named Tanveer Zeeshan (now working on his stamina - bowls over 150 kmph), to Yasir Ali (88 or above) before Mohammad Irshad & then a certain Jamshed Ahmed ~ in Wasim Akram category. You'll also know about Akhtar Ayub in that forum post, who clocked 88.2 miles per hour in the under 19 world cup at just the age of 19.
Aaqib Javed has told exclusively to pakistan passion .com that Mohammad Talha - a 16 year old sensation is already bowling at a speed of 85 miles per hour. Pepsi sponsors most of Pakistan cricket, and the Pace Competition where young bowlers show their talent with cricket ball. This is where all Pakistan's fast bowling talent collaborates.
The thread goes deep into why these fast bowlers like Mohammad Sami, Naved ul Hasan, Shabbir Ahmed are coming but losing their shine.. thread also explains why there still be no shortage of genuine fast bowlers from Pakistan & we'll always see an Asif come after Akram n Akhtar before Arafat.
Bob Woolmer was first foreign coach of Pakistan. He, thus, was the first outsider to see the local cricket talent in Pakistan. The talent hunter dreamt of winning the cricket world with that - but failed... so, in the end, I'll wish the Whatmores n the Lawsons to Please! take Pakistan cricket where it's supposed to be.
So much talent, but so little success!?!
