Multan Sultans bowling coach Azhar Mahmood said fast bowler Shahnawaz Dahani can bowl at good speeds.
Earlier this year, Dahani said he is capable of bowling quicker than 140 kph.
In the recent Pakistan Super League (PSL), he helped the Multan Sultans win their first-ever title.
The up-and-coming speedster finished as the highest wicket-taker in the tournament with 20 wickets in 11 games at an average of 17 and an economy rate of 8.42.
While Mahmood said that Dahani has good pace, he pointed out that the 22-year-old “will need to work on his line and length”, and pitch the ball up more often.
“He definitely has the ability to bowl at good speeds but he will need to work on his line and length and learn to pitch the ball up for more success,” Mahmood wrote in his blog for PakPassion.
Dahani has kept hold of his spot in the Test team for the upcoming tour of the West Indies.
He was part of the Test side for the recent series against Zimbabwe, but didn’t feature in any games.
Despite this, he will be hoping to make his international debut in the Caribbean.
Pakistan’s tour of the West Indies will consist of five T20 Internationals and two Tests, with the T20 series getting underway on July 27 and ending on August 3.
As for the Test series, it will start on August 12 and conclude on August 24.
