Spinner Usama Mir is a new inclusion to the wardrobe of the Pakistan cricket team. He has gathered the people’s attention since he delivered an absolute peach to Kane Williamson. We will examine how rigorous or lenient the journey has been for him and what his future holds for him.
Who is Spinner Usama Mir?
The 27-year-old was born on December 23. He made his List A debut against National Bank in January 2015. He has 63 wickets in 40 matches at an average of 28. Considering the pitches of Pakistan this record looks pretty decent to hand him an international Cap.
Leg Spinner Usama Mir is exactly the one who was admiringly praised by Cricket giant Kumar Sangakkara when he was playing for Karachi kings. Usama produced the match-turning spell which eventually became a match-winning against Peshawar Zalmi.
The world Cup is Coming and Leg Spinner Usama Mir’s future is what he will make of it
World Cup 2023, Indian Pitches, Spinner’s favourite and Mir’s Future all lie in the Same plane. Every team is trying to have the best combination of Spinners to take the world cup home. Pakistan also tried Usman Qadir back in 2021 but didn’t have many one-day matches forthcoming to have someone else who got his test of abilities done.
With Coming ODIs before the world cup and having good conditions in Pakistan(for ODIs) where he has played the majority of Cricket, he can make his presence count but the major test of the attributes that have been attached to him will be in India. The 28-year-old will have to comprehend and furnish in the new conditions as he has never been to those pitches before.
How will the Pakistan team Adjust to Usama Mir once Shadab khan Comes in?
The backbone of the Pakistan white ball team got injured in BBL but it can be a blessing in disguise if the one who was added in place of him delivers in some crucial stage. But the question that arises is how two leg spinners are going to be managed with Muhammad Nawaz already there. One thing that can be foreseen is to have three spinners and two fast bowlers as Indian pitches offer nothing much to typical fast bowlers except the new ball overs.
Having three of them and your two best fast bowlers only looks the way forward. The spin department needs to be heavy in India as the fast department needs to be in Australia.
