Former Pakistan captain Ramiz Raja said seamer Shahnawaz Dhani has all the tools necessary to become a perfect reverse swing bowler.

Dhani could make his international debut soon as he was picked in the Test squad for the tour of South Africa and Zimbabwe.

In the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy, the 22-year-old took 26 wickets in seven matches for Sindh at an average of 31.19.

He was also one of the standout performers in the Pakistan Super League (PSL), where he was representing the Multan Sultans.

Dhani was the joint second-highest wicket-taker with nine wickets in four matches at an average of 17.22, bowling strike-rate of 10 and an economy rate of 10.33.

“He has a brilliant rhythmical run-up, conserves energy, and has a bit of round-arm action which is perfect for reverse swing bowling,” Ramiz said in a YouTube video as quoted by Cricket Pakistan. “He bowls on hard lengths which can be very useful for him in Test matches. Bowling speed is also good, handles pressure well, and has the presence of mind.”

Pakistan will play three ODIs and four T20 Internationals against South Africa before heading to Zimbabwe for two Tests and three T20 Internationals.

Pakistan will depart for South Africa on March 26 and the tour will commence on April 2 and conclude on April 16. The ODI series will be played first.

The men in green will then head to Zimbabwe on April 17, but the dates for the matches have yet to be confirmed.

However, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) noted that the national team will travel back to Lahore from Bulawayo on May 12.

Pakistan’s Test Squad: Babar Azam (capt), Imran Butt, Abid Ali, Abdullah Shafique, Azhar Ali, Fawad Alam, Saud Shakeel, Agha Salman, Faheem Ashraf, Mohammad Nawaz, Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Sarfaraz Ahmed, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Haris Rauf, Tabish Khan, Hasan Ali, Shahnawaz Dhani, Nauman Ali, Zahid Mahmood, Sajid Khan.
