The least-hyped but most successful and solid Pakistan pace product of the last few years, He had played just nine first-class matches when called up for national duty in the wake of Pakistan's poor 2003 World Cup. On the flat tracks of Sharjah, Gul performed very well, maintaining excellent regulation and getting appreciable outswing with the new ball.Umar Gul is one Pakistan fast bowler who has earned a good reputation in the past few years.. Gul isn't in the Shoaib Akhtar mould in terms of pace, but his outstanding control and skill to extort seam movement single him out. Also, his height facilitates him to extract bounce on most surfaces and from his natural back of a length, it is a valuable trait. Unluckily, that was his last cricket of any kind for over a year as he discovered three stress fractures in his back immediately after the Test. The injury would have ended many an international career, but Gul returned, fitter and sharper than before in late 2005.

He returned in a Pakistan shirt against India in the ODI series at home in February 2006 and in Sri Lanka showed further signs of treatment by lasting both Tests but it was really the second half of 2006, where he fully came of age. Leading the attack against England and then the West Indies as Pakistan's main bowlers suffered injuries, Gul stood tall, finishing Pakistan's best bowler.Since then, as Mohammad Asif and Shoaib Akhtar have floundered, Gul has become Pakistan's front line bowler and one of the best fast bowlers in the world. He is smart enough and good enough to succeed in all three formats and 2009 proved it: he put together a patch of wicket-taking in ODIs, on dead pitches in Tests (including a career-best six-wicket haul against Sri Lanka) and established himself as the world's best Twenty20 b Find Umar Gul profile and stats of batting, bowling and fielding including latest updated news of Umar Gul, videos and images at Also find detail Player profile and career statistics of Umar Gul of Pakistan.
