Two questions about pakistani fast bowlers from me.
For one, how do they produce so many bowlers of express pace? Shoaib Akhtar, Mohammad Sami, Rana Naved can/have all bowl(ed) at 145kph and going back in time, Waqar Younis and Wasim were both very sharp in their day and going back further, Imran Khan was, to quote Richie Benaud "fast medium and occasionally fast". This is all neighbouring India who have only really had Javagal Srinath (for a year or two) and Ishant Sharma of similar pace. Furthermore, Pakistan have batteries of 135kph bowlers (three are mentioned below) whereas a place like India have bowlers nearer the 125kph mark.
Secondly, how do Pakistani pace bowlers (specifically those around the 135kph mark) have such good FC statistics (strike rates in particular) when Pakistan is renouned for dead wickets. Sohail Khan has a strike rate of 33.8, Yasir Arafat has one of 40.4 and Samiullah Khan has a FC strike rate of 41.3, to name just a few.
Can a moderator please move this to cricket chat, I accidentally posted it here.
