Profile

Mohammad Talha should not be judged by the lack of muscle on a body more thin than lean; that very body produces some discomfiting, skiddy pace, particularly after the ball has landed. He is young still but has, over the 2007, announced himself as a man with serious credentials for the national side. Talha first came to prominence in 2005, during the Afro-Asia U-19 Cup in Visakhapatnam for Pakistan. Wickets weren't immediate but something about him impressed the establishment and he has since worked extensively with Aaqib Javed, who was impressed first at the National Cricket Academy and then as coach of a Pakistan Academy side touring Zimbabwe and Kenya in August-September 2008. His start in first-class cricket was impressive; he starred in Punjab Stallions' run to the Pentangular ODI Cup in December 2008 and a series of consistent performances in the domestic circuit eventually won him a Test cap against Sri Lanka in Lahore in March 2009 .
