At only the age of 18, Shadab Khan has highly impressed on his descend to his personal inaugural PSL season. Drifting in those deadly wrong’uns making it hard for the batsman to guess whether the next delivery will be that ripping googly or just another breaker of the pitch.
Shadab Khan has an elegant action of a leg-spinner that is most likely to toss in those googlies without you having any idea about them. Shadab Khan’s both actions of bowling his regular leg-break and googly are nearly the same, which makes it even harder for the batsman.
It’s not only the white cherries that he loves to toss few in, hence he has improvised the art of batting and loves to play 360 degree all around the ground. In a recent encounter between Lahore Qalandars and Islamabad United, Shadab scored 42 of 24 deliveries in which he struck three sixes and two boundaries, got the Islamabad troops out of a tough chance to the game and gave the bowlers a decent target to defend.
In a recent interview, Shadab idolized Shane Warne and Australian skipper Steve Smith. Although Shadab recently had an encounter with his idol Smith in the hotel lift, but there was no sort of communication as Shadab exerted that he was “Lost in his coolness”.
Shadab made his LIST A debut for Islamabad in the Pakistan Cup against Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa where he played a match winning knock of 33 in 29 and a wicket to seal victory for his team.
In the ongoing season of PSL, Shadab has scalped 5 batsmen in his 6 matches played, with an average of 27.20 and economy of 7.15, Shadab would be looking forward to represent his nation in the green jersey sooner in the upcoming tour to West Indies.
