Pakistani pace bowler Mohammad Sami has been bowling impressive spells in the ongoing edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL). Sami has been an integral part of the successful Islamabad United campaign thus far in the tournament. Recently, Islamabad United beat the Karachi Kings in the Qualifier to march in to the finals of the tournament.
With players like Sami in form, the United team look set for their second title win. It is worth noting that Mohammad Sami is still bowling at serious pace despite being at the wrong end of the age group. The pacer has been clocking speeds in excess of 140 kmph at a consistent basis.
It is perhaps because of this why former Australian cricketer Dean Jones believes that Sami could make an international comeback as well. As per the quotoes in the Khaleej Times, Dean Jones remarked that Sami still has a good chance of playing at the highest level.
“Sami still has a chance, believe it or not, to do something for Pakistan in the future and I honestly believe that. He always plays well for us. I understand what Sami is like. He is an amazing athlete who can bowl 140-145 at this age,” Dean Jones quoted.
Impressive outing in the PSL thus far
In the ongoing edition of the PSL, Mohammad Sami has scalped 10 wickets in the 9 matches that he has played thus far. His best figures in the series has been his 3/21 in a league game fixture against the Lahore Qalandars. The match had gone in to the Super Over. Also, in the recently played Qualifier against the Karachi Kings, Mohammad Sami took 2/20 in his quota of four overs.
If he continues to play in the same way, it will not be a surprise to see him make a national comeback. Take a look at how he dismissed Babar Azam in a recent fixture.
