Big Bash League (BBL) side Sydney Thunder have included Pakistan’s 21-year-old T20 fast bowler Mohammad Hasnain in the club’s roster for the season.

“He bowls fast; Easily go up to 150kmph,” Cutting said.

“He’s a lovely young kid, and his team back home is looking forward to learning about the game and coming here and bowling fast. Mohammad would love to bowl in Australia. We have fast pitches and big boundaries. – conditions that are far more conducive to fast bowling than Pakistan,” Cutting said in a statement on
