The 2011 World Cup was memorable one for the Indian cricket team and its millions of fans. Pacer Munaf Patel was an important member of that team. He was India’s third-highest wicket-taker with 11 scalps after Zaheer Khan (21) and Yuvraj Singh (15). On Tuesday, Ashwin posted a video from his Twitter showing a kid bowling to his peers. The action of the kid impressed the pacer and he even found similarities with Afghanistan star Rashid Khan.
“Kya talent he is bachhe main, Gajab Bowling karta he, action is quite similar with @rashidkhan_19 (The kid is a greta taent. Marvelous bowling. His action is quite similar to Rashid Khan),” Munaf Patel tweeted.
