India vs Afghanistan test series is going to be another thrilling match. However, ahead of the historic match, Rashid Khan gave a very candid interview, where he revealed quite a lot of things. In the interview he called himself a finger spinner. Talking about the same, he said:
“I call myself a finger spinner,” He said ,“Sounds unusual but that’s how I bowl,”
“I don’t use my wrist a lot in my bowling. I use my fingers as I deliver using the tip of my fingers. That helps me bowl quicker. I am a leg-spinner who bowls good wrong-uns.”
Rashid Khan further explained that no one taught him how to bowl wrong-uns and leg spin, he learnt by watching Kumble and Afridi, over these years. He said:
“Nobody taught me to bowl leg spin and the wrong-uns,”
He explained it further:
“I haven’t watched and followed anyone in particular. I just observed Shahid Afridi and Anil Kumble. I don’t remember the exact period but maybe it was five-six years ago. I still watch Kumble when I am free.”
