Karachi: The bowlers have a habit of revealing the names of the most difficult batsmen to bowl. The names of the battered batsmen are usually said by the foremen. But Pakistan spinner Shadab Khan has made a name for himself.
Shadab Khan is named after Indian opener Rohit Sharma and Australian opener David Warner. The Pakistani cricketer was responding to a question from a fan on Twitter. With over 15,000 runs in international cricket, Rohit Sharma is considered one of the best batsmen of his time. Warner is the strength of the current openers with his batting prowess.
Rohit Sharma is the only batsman to score three double centuries in ODIs. He has 9205 runs in 227 ODIs at an average of 48.96. Rohit has scored 3047 runs in 43 Tests and 3197 runs in 119 International T20s. Rohit has 29 ODI centuries, eight Tests and four T20I centuries. Rohit has scored 5611 runs in 213 IPL matches. Rohit’s next tour is South Africa. He will not play in the Test series due to injury. Rohit is expected to play in ODIs. Rohit is currently the ODI and T20 captain of Team India.
When Australia won the recent T20 World Cup, Warner scored 289 runs in seven matches. Warner’s 53 against New Zealand in the final was decisive. Warner has 7513 runs in 88 Tests, 5455 runs in 128 ODIs and 2554 runs in 88 International T20s. He scored 24 in Tests, 18 in ODIs and one in T20I. Warner adds 5449 runs in 150 IPL matches.
Shadab Khan was a member of the Pakistan team that reached the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup. The player described his exit from the World Cup in 2021 as the most heartbreaking moment of his life. Shadab selected the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy title, the 2018 PSL title and the India-Pakistan clash in the T20 World Cup as unforgettable moments in his career.
