Shadab Khan: A Next Big Star Of Pakistan

Shadab Khan is a cricketer for Pakistan who competes in both one-day and test matches. On October 4, 1998, in the city of Mianwali, Punjab, Pakistan, he entered the world. Shadab is a versatile player, but his best skill is bowling leg spin with his right arm. This post is a headlines cricket for Shadab’s career.

When bowling, Shadab prefers to utilise his wit to fool the batter rather than bowling at full speed. His wide-angle deliveries may fly in the air or stay on the ground, making him a dangerous bowler.

  • Background of Shadab Khan

At the age of 12, Shadab relocated to Rawalpindi, where he quickly established himself as a key member of the school’s cricket squad. His desire to learn from Pakistan’s cricketing legends like Mushtaq Ahmed and Abdul Qadir led him to enrol at the National Cricket Academy in Lahore

His development was on track, and he was expected to be a first-round pick for the 2016 Under-19 World Cup.
