Debuting as a 31-year-old in 2014 for his adopted country of Oman, Mohammad Nadeem did not bat and took no wickets in four overs against Malaysia. Over the next four years, Nadeem's contributions to the Oman ledger remained underwhelming to say the least. It took until his 43rd match with Oman, two days before his 36th birthday against Hong Kong at the 2018 Asia Cup Qualifier in Malaysia, for him to finally notch a half-century in international cricket.

So to call Nadeem a late bloomer would be a healthy understatement. But he has rewarded the faith of Oman's management team by transforming into an indispensable middle-order allrounder. There is nothing flashy about his batting technique, but his ability to soak up pressure in tense situations and get Oman across the line with a string of valuable not outs was instrumental in Oman's progress through the final stages of the World Cricket League ladder to finally secure ODI status in April 2019. That knack for remaining unbeaten has continued in his ODI career and contributed to maintaining a robust average despite a modest strike rate.

As for his bowling, Nadeem's slow jog into the crease belies the consistent 130-135 kph pace he is able to generate - at times he has been clocked above 140 kph - by flinging the ball in with his wiry frame. In a team that has been frequently loaded with quality frontline pace options, Nadeem's presence has allowed Oman to leave one out in favor of an extra spinner when conditions have called for it without suffering much of a dropoff in pace quality. Though he may not be a full quota bowler, his strike rate is indicative of his effectiveness at creating breakthroughs when called upon, particularly in the middle overs.
