Profile

Don't make Shapoor Zadran angry. You won't like him when he's angry. Well over six feet tall, with flowing jet black hair and a piercing gaze, Shapoor's run-up begins most of the way to the boundary and he's built a name for himself with pace, bounce and aggression as a left-arm seamer. As an out-and-out fast bowler there is, of course, always a hostile element to his bowling and as Shapoor explains it: "I am angry every time I bowl. A bowler has to be angry, so that his reaction can carry over to the batsmen, who get unsettled and end up making a mistake."
