Bilawal Bhatti (born 17 September 1991, Burewala)[1] is an international cricketer from Pakistan. 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.

Career[edit]

2010[edit]

In November, Bhatti was part of the team at the Asian Games in Guangzhou, China[2] which won a bronze medal by beating Sri Lanka in the 3rd place playoffs.He is a genuine and complete all-rounder.

T20I and Test Career[edit]

On 20 November 2013, he was included in national team to represent in T20 for Pakistan against South Africa. Bilawal played his first test against Sri Lanka and enjoyed a fine debut, taking 5 wickets in 2 innings.In second test, he showed his capability of batting making 24 not out and 32 runs.

It went downhill from there however, as he conceded 30 runs in an over vs Australia at the WT20 2014, while bowling to Maxwell and Finch. He also conceded 93 runs in the 2nd ODI vs New Zealand in 2015, equalling the record of most expensive figures for a Pakistani bowler with Wahab Riaz
