Yasir Shah made his first-class debut in February 2002 but had to wait nine years to play international cricket. An ODI and two T20s later, he was back out of the reckoning, seemingly forgotten forever. The recall, when it arrived, came at a time of crisis for Pakistan, when Saeed Ajmal was banned for chucking in September 2014.
Yasir didn't just grab the opportunity; he made everyone forget they were supposed to miss Ajmal, spinning his way to 12 wickets in his debut series at an average of just over 17, as Pakistan whitewashed Australia 2-0. Bounding in with the energy of his spiritual forbears Abdul Qadir and Mushtaq Ahmed, but with the legbreak rather than the googly as his go-to weapon, Yasir quickly won a horde of admirers including Shane Warne, who praised his "energy and shape on the ball, also his over spinner and patience", and proclaimed he would finish with more than 200 Test wickets.
Fakhar Zaman is a Pakistani first-class cricketer who plays for Habib Bank Limited. He was born in Mardan. He had a year-long schooling at Pakistan Navy School Bahadur in Karachi, where he learned how to survive the seas before parting ways to embrace cricket formally. His team-mates call him fauji (soldier).
The left-handed batsman was the second-highest run-scorer in the Pakistan Cup earlier this year, with 297 runs in five innings at 59.40, including a knock of 115 that set up Khyber Pakhtunkhwa's 151-run win in the final. His ability to bowl left-arm spin makes him a utility player and he is in contention for a place in the national side after appearances for Pakistan A. In the ongoing Quaid-e-Azam Trophy season, he has already racked up 650 runs at an average of 54.16.
A product of the Under-19 system, Anton Devcich turned out five times for New Zealand in the 2004 Under-19 World Cup in Bangladesh. Though he began his first-class career batting at Nos. 9 and 10, Devcich eventually worked his way up to the middle order. In his debut match for Northern Districts, against Otago in the 2004-05 State Championship, Devcich batted at No. 9 but made a mark with an unbeaten 94. Devcich built up his credentials as a batsman to become a regular opener in the shorter formats.
Shaheen Afridi considers himself an allrounder and seeks to excel in bowling, batting and fielding. In 2017, Afridi was noted as a 6-foot 6 inch 17-year-old Pakistani fast-bowling talent who can bowl 90 mph and also for his big-hitting ability. In December 2016, Afridi was included in the Pakistan U19 cricket team selected for the U19 Asia Cup held in Sri Lanka. He took 3 wickets for 27 runs in Pakistan's nine wickets win over Singapore in their opening match of the U-19 Asia Cup.
In December 2017, he was named in Pakistan's squad for the 2018 U19 Cricket World Cup. He was the leading wicket-taker for Pakistan in the tournament, with 12 wickets. Following Pakistan's matches in the tournament, the International Cricket Council (ICC) named Afridi as the rising star of the squad.
