Pakistani all-rounder Shadab Khan is making waves at the ongoing Major League Cricket (MLC) in the United States.
Shadab, while representing San Francisco Unicorns, has taken five wickets in as many matches so far.
In the latest match against Texas Super Kings (TSK), one of Shadab’s wickets went viral on social media.
The right-arm leggie bowled a perfect googly which pitched outside leg and pinged the top off in no time. Striker Mitchell Santner had no clue about this delivery and walked off straight away.
TSK chased down the last 80 with five balls remaining to win the contest against Shadab’s team.
