Shane Warne Applauds Seven-Year-Old Spinner From Kashmir
Shane Warne mentioned the young spinner during the lunch break broadcast on the second day of the first Test in Adelaide.
A seven-year-old boy from Jammu and Kashmir's Ganderbal district has become an internet sensation after Australian spin great Shane Warne lauded his bowling. A video of the boy, Ahmad, bowling at a local match was shared by a journalist Islah Mufti on micro-blogging site Twitter earlier this year. "Easily ball of the century. A googly that turns a metre and a half. Shane Warne take a look. You have some competition," Mufti said in a tweet he posted on July 23. Warne responded to the tweet on Wednesday.
"This is outstanding! Well bowled young man," the spin legend tweeted.
The video of Ahmad's bowling has received over 64,000 views so far.
A clip of the broadcast on Fox Cricket's Instagram page has also garnered nearly 50,000 views.
