Afghanistan sensation and world top ranked bowler Rashid Khan is the one cricketer who remains in the headline regularly. He is known for his terrific wrong’un and leg-spin bowling. However, recently he revealed that all his brothers, cousins and nephews bowls leg-spin like him.
In a famous chat show named ‘Breakfast with champions’ anchored by Gaurav Kapur, Rashid revealed this interesting story by saying, “They are all spinners. They can bowl a leg spin, wrong’un. Whenever I go home, I used to play with them and still they are troubling me when I bat against them. Even my nephews, just yesterday I called them and they were playing cricket at home. My mom told me, ‘Look they are playing where you used to play and I am going to stop them but they are not going to stop. They might break the mirror or something.’ I said, ‘Let them play cricket.”
Further, Rashid spoke about one of his nephews who showed him how they bowl and added, “One of my nephews grabbed the phone from her and said, ‘Let me show how we play cricket here.’ So, when I went there, all my nephews were there. Everyone was telling me, ‘Look who is bowling like you and they were showing me. All of them were leg-spinners and I was very surprised.”
Gaurav then interrupted and said, “Means, there is a factory of leg-spinners at your home.” Rashid then candidly replied, “All of them. Even if you ask the little ones to bowl a wrong’un and leg-spin, they will do it. When I went back recently, I was completely baffled.”
A week later, Rashid uploaded a short clip from his official Twitter handle of one of his brother bowling leg-spin and getting the ball turn easily.
