T20I Career

He was selected in the T20 side and made his debut against South Africa in November 2013. His debuts in ODIs and Tests followed soon after. Bhatti, particularly, was impressive in his Test debut against Sri Lanka, in which he managed to take 5 wickets.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.

Test Career

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.Unlike some of the other Pakistan bowlers, height isn't one of his assets (he's only 5 feet 6 inches tall), but his strength is the ability to nip the ball in sharply at good pace. As a batsman he is handy at No. 7 or 8, and is known for his clean hitting against spin.
