PSL 2024: Karachi Kings vs Quetta Gladiators

PSL 2024:

A video during the match between Karachi Kings and Quetta Gladiators is making headlines on social media.

The reason is the amazing action and run-up of Quetta Gladiators bowler Usman Tariq.

Which is being discussed everywhere on social media.

During the Pakistan Super League match against Karachi Kings, the Quetta Gladiators bowler bowled lethally and took two wickets in one over.

Tim Seifert could not understand Usman Tariq's ball and was out lbw, while James Vince also played the ball on the back foot and he too was out lbw and returned to the pavilion.

What caught everyone's attention was his bowling action and run-up.

Usman Tariq has a simple off-spin action but he pauses a bit before bowling the ball, which proves effective in breaking the batsman's concentration.

Experienced Indian off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin is also sometimes seen stopping his bowling action.


There have been many bowlers in the history of cricket who are known for their strange bowling actions.

Some of these names are Indian player Kedar Jadhav, Pakistani bowler Sohail Tanvir, Sri Lankan legend Lasith Malinga, South African Paul Adams and Sri Lankan spinner Muttiah Muralitharan.

Although the bowling action of these bowlers was strange, it proved to be a boon for them and also helped them in achieving success.
