Actually Hamid Hassan is both faster and has got more control than Shahpoor Zadran, and
yes we've plenty of fast bowling talent, the future looks even brighter. Shahpoor hardly can play himself into the squad.
This guy has been our top wicket taker at both U19 and senior level recently. Bowls around 135-37 but is damn accurate. We've an other guy at U-19, who bowls at around 140, his action is a mixture of Tait and Malinga, very big expectations to him here as he is only 17 and have plenty of time to improve.
This guy lunches rockets, but has been disappointing lately. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c12CpgFtp1k
And this is the guy who has replaced Shahpoor Zadran in our team. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xV6FPSbfQZI
So fast bowling wise it is looking very good and inshallah in the future we might become a powerhouse of Speed. But we need ICC funds to improve our structure, The above guy had never played on a grassy pitch in his province before he came to Kabul for domestic cricket.
