Usman Qadir, the young gun, has taken the art of leg-spin from his father Abdul Qadir and aims to continue the magic which once belonged to Pakistan’s classy leggie. Unlike his father, the Lahore born cricketer has moved to Australia where he is pursuing a cricket career for the Kangaroos.
The 25-year old, after some impressive displays in the domestic games, finally got his chance to play the high profile Big Bash League (BBL) where he made his debut for Perth Scorchers.
While he wasn’t able to impress against Renegades, the smart cricketer showed his class in the game against Stars.
Like most of the spinners of the tournament, Usman proved a hard nut to crack as his spinning balls tested the batting unit of Melbourne Stars. Bagging the crucial wicket of a well-set Evan Gulbis, the dexterous spinner conceded only 25 runs in his first outing of Australia’s premier domestic T20 competition which helped his side register their second win of the tournament.
