Pak sensation Irfan’s coach says protégé can become ‘fastest bowler’ in world
Islamabad: Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Irfan can become the fastest bowler in the world despite making his one-day international debut at the age of 30, according to his coach Nadeem Iqbal. After making an unimpressive debut in England two years back, Irfan has burst into action in India, impressing one and all with his bowling and surprising the likes of former Pakistani pace bowler turned commentator Wasim Akram, Pakpassion.net reports.
At thirty it remains to be seen just how long Irfan can last in international cricket particularly with some doubting his fitness levels, but his coach Iqbal is sure that his protégé can get even better and bowl even quicker than he has been during the ongoing tour of India. Iqbal said he has seen Irfan bowl quicker than he has been bowling in India and has no doubt that he can be the fastest bowler in the world. Iqbal added that he doesn’t believe in the theory of some coaches that as a bowler you cannot get faster with age, since it’s a matter of tweaking a few technical things here and there and also working on your fitness.
