Bilawal Bhatti is a promising allrounder who can bowl at over 140 kph, and can also hit the ball a fair distance lower down the order. He made his ODI debut against South Africa in Cape Town in 2013, and made his mark immediately with both bat and ball, biffing 39 off 25 balls, and taking 3 for 37 in a Pakistan win.
Born in Muridke, a small town 40 km away from Lahore, Bhatti was thought to be good enough for international cricket well before he actually played for Pakistan. He made his first-class debut in 2009, and made his mark in the 20 matches he played for Sialkot, taking 89 wickets at 26. His better all-round performances, though, came with Sui Gas: in 17 matches with them before his ODI debut, he bagged 72 wickets at 19.33, and also scored two first-class centuries. He was called up into the national team when in good form, having smacked a century and a half-century, and also taken nine wickets in three games in the ongoing President Trophy 2013-14.
Unlike some of the other Pakistan bowlers, height isn't one of his assets (he's only 5 feet 6 inches tall), but his strength is the ability to nip the ball in sharply at good pace. As a batsman he is handy at No. 7 or 8, and is known for his clean hitting against spin.

Three days ahead of the fourth Test, the surface at the HPCA Stadium wore a smattering of grass. Will that, or Mohammed Shami's availability, subject to fitness, change India's combination?
Stats highlights from the fourth day in Ranchi, where Cheteshwar Pujara batted for ages and the Australians toiled like they haven't had to in many years
Did Virat Kohli get his tactics right on the final day in Ranchi? Going by his fast bowlers' lines and R Ashwin's late introduction, the Indian captain took a few puzzling calls
For the third time this home season, the team took the lead after its opposition put up 400 batting first but the Ranchi effort was special
Also, which players have the most half-centuries without ever having made a hundred?
South Africa are set to play 14 Tests in nine months soon, so both fast bowlers, despite being sent home from New Zealand, should not lose hope
This Bangladesh are crazy if they think they can beat Sri Lanka in their own den. Right?
Under duress again, Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim forged a match-winning partnership and contributed in the second innings to help Bangladesh create history
