Shadab Khan is the magical spin bowler of the Pakistan cricket team. In the ongoing series with Afghanistan, he is mentoring the team and polishing his skipper skills. In the last t20 match of the series, he claims his 100th wicket by dismissing Ghani. He is the first Pakistani and 7th over all bowler in the world to reach this milestone.
Pakistan is blessed with a lot of talented and amazing sportspersons, especially in cricket. Imran Khan, Wasim Akram, Waqar Younus, Shahid Afridi, Babar Azam and list goes on. The latest name that was added today is Shadab Khan, the magical spin bowler of the team. His performance refers to an allrounder as he bats and fields really well as well.
Before the last series match with Afghanistan, his wicket count was 97. The whole world was eager to watch him cross this huge milestone in his career. And he did not disappoint a bit. While defending the total of 182, he dismissed two batsmen with ease. Now he is looking for his next and huge target to reach at the podium. Finally, he throw a ball to Afghani Player Usman Ghani and he was caught by the fielder easily.
After taking the wicket he bow down to Allah Almighty to show how he is humbled and happy with this achievement. Moreover, Shadab Khan is the first Pakistani and 7th overall player to reach this position so far. He was also a part of the Pakistan team that won the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 in England. He was given a Test cap against the West Indies the following month, in which he took just one wicket. However, the teenage prodigy is certainly an excellent find for Pakistan and, if honed properly, a potential great in the making.
Since we lost the series to Afghanistan this time. But this achievement of our little boy is enough to make the nation happy. Now his following bowlers are Haris Rauf and Shaheen Shah Afridi. We wish them all the luck to achieve such milestones to make the cricket world proud.
