Mohammad Sami is a tearaway fast bowler with a lot of talent, but usually has to content himself by staying in the shadow of the more flamboyant Shoaib Akhtar. He hardly looks like a pace bowler, neither does he have the express run-up of Akhtar, but produces consistent speed of around 90 mph.

He has not made much of an impact in Test cricket yet, having enjoyed the one-day arena better.

He has grabbed has grabbed hat-tricks in both forms of the game - both in 2002 - and averages around 27 in one-day cricket.

Strengths: Shows promise

Weaknesses: Fielding
