Profile

Pakistan has always produced great fast bowlers over the years, and Mohammad Asif is the latest addition to the list.

A tall and lean bowler, Asif's nagging consistency and his habit to get under the batsmen's skin help him fetch wickets. Being tall, he has the distinct ability to generate bounce from a flat track. He can seam the ball both ways on most wickets and can regularly bowl around 80 mph. Asif is a sharp bowling brain and this coupled with stamina and control over his bowling make him a wicket-taking prospect.

Asif's career has been surrounded by controversy too, whether it is a drug ban or a spat with team-mate Shoaib Akhtar.
