Leg-spinner, Shadab Khan is one of the brightest stars to have emerged for Pakistan in recent times. The talented player does not only have an ability to spin a web around the batsmen but he is also very capable with the bat down the order.
In a recent interview, the youngster has revealed the man behind his success who made his international debut with Pakistan. Shadab Khan has said that Rawalpindi Region head coach Sabih Azhar is the main person behind his success while rating him as one of the best coaches in the country.
“I played U-13, U-16 and U-19 cricket for Rawalpindi Region and believe me, it was Sabih Azhar, who always had a huge trust and confidence in my abilities. When I played U-19 World Cup for Pakistan, I performed really well, which further strengthened the belief of Sabih on me,” he said.
He revealed that in 2017 during the National One Day, Sabih Azhar who was coaching Rawalpindi Region announced him as a key player for not only Rawalpindi but for Pakistan team as well and predicted that Shadab will play 100 Tests and at least 400 ODIs for Pakistan.
