Aizaz Cheema - First Impressions

Feel for the 31 year old. Was making his debut on a motorway. No assistance in the pitch whatsoever. Flat as a pancake. Nevertheless he bowled fairly tightly. His economy rate was good. Bowled many maidens. Pace is decent. Failed to really threaten or trouble the batsmen. At times he was over predictable and they were comfortably leaving outside the off stump. Could have tried to make them play more frequently without over compensating. Brings the ball back into the right handers primarily and isn’t afraid to experiment with his slower ones. Will be more suited to LOIs in my honest opinion. Steady rather than spectacular. Not the worst debut in the world. Much deserved test cap for the PIA paceman.
