Pakistan bowling coach Waqar Younis has said that the country has “always been blessed with good fast bowlers”.
Pakistan currently have a number of talented young seamers in their squad, including Shaheen Shah Afridi, Naseem Shah and Mohammad Hasnain.
Afridi was the most successful Pakistan bowler in the recently concluded two-Test series against Sri Lanka with eight wickets at an average of 23.25.
Naseem finished with seven wickets at an average of 27.71, but also made history in the second Test in Karachi, which Pakistan won by 263 runs.
The 16-year-old dismissed Kusal Mendis, Dinesh Chandimal, Dilruwan Perera, Lasith Embuldeniya and Vishwa Fernando to become the youngest pace bowler to take a five-for in Test cricket.
