Faheem Ashraf

An allrounder perfect for the white-ball format. Bowling accurate medium pace which has got the better of many batsmen over the past year, he can is also a powerful hitter of the ball


Born: January 16, 1994

Role: Left-hand bat, right-arm medium

One might class Faheem Ashraf in the ‘good find’ category. As useful as a useful allrounder could wish to be, he can list both a hundred and a five-wicket haul on his first-class portfolio, with a batting average higher than his bowling equivalent. It is the hallmark of a solid cricketer.

In international colours, it has been with the ball where the 25-year-old has made more of an impact.

Currently, he sits alongside Brett Lee, Jacob Oram, Tim Southee, Thisara Perera, Lasith Malinga and Rashid Khan in taking a T20 international hat-trick – he is in decent company.

A tough competitor, Ashraf is – in a sense – an old-fashioned white-ball player; in style if nothing else, there is an element of someone like Tim Bresnan in the way that he plays the game.

A member of the Pakistan Test side that drew their series in the UK in 2018, he formed part of a formidable bowling attack and dismissed both Jonny Bairstow and Keaton Jennings.

His presence in Pakistan’s 15-man squad can only be of benefit.
