Sydney Thunder snap-up Pakistan tearaway Mohammad Hasnain

The 21-year-old will join the Thunder squad for the rest of the BBL 11 season

Sydney Thunder have confirmed the signing of Pakistani pace sensation Mohammad Hasnain, who will be joining the franchise for the rest of the Big Bash League (BBL) 11 season.

The Thunder are currently third in the BBL 11 table, and their squad, which already consists of quicks such as Saqib Mahmood and Nathan McAndrew, will be further bolstered by the addition of the 21-year-old, who has already earnt the reputation of being a bowler who delivers rockets.

Hasnain, who played a solitary T20I against West Indies in the three-match series that Pakistan won 3-0, will join Alex Hales, Sam Billings and Mahmood as an overseas player for the Thunder.

“He’s a lovely young kid, and his team back home is keen for him to learn about the game and to also come out here and bowl fast.

“Muhammad is going to love bowling in Australia. We have faster pitches and bigger boundaries - conditions that are far more conducive to bowling fast than they are in Pakistan.

“I have no doubt he’s going to enjoy the experience, and I know he’ll be a tremendous addition to Sydney Thunder’s squad,” The Thunder’s official website quoted Ben Cutting, a senior member in the squad, as saying. 

Hasnain plays for Quetta Gladiators in the Pakistan Super League, and has also been a part of the Trinbago Knight Riders (TKR) squad in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL).
