    The next Wasim?

    U-19 World Cup: Player of the Day, Zahid Saeed
    18 January 2000

    Pak pacer wrecks New Zealand

    The architect of Pakistan's comfortable victory over New Zealand was their left-arm pace bowler Zahid Saeed. In helpful conditions, Saeed was quite
    unplayable and none of the batsmen were able to cope with his pace.

    Saeed looks a certain future Test player. The tall lad knocked the backbone of the New Zealand batsmen in devastating fashion, finishing with five
    for 13. Saeed is the only bowler upto now in the tournament to have taken five wickets in an innings. In Radella he had 3 for 14 in a first round
    game of the game against Kenya.

    Saeed holds the key to Pakistan's success in future games. If he maintains his form, Pakistan looks certain of going through to the final.
