Sydney Sixers picks leg spinner Shadab khan

Known as a major development, the Sydney Sixers won the Shadab Khan in the current Big Bash League (BBL) 202122. It should be noted that Pakistani all-rounders played in Brisbane Heat in the 201718 season. Therefore, Sydney will be his second team at Australia’s major T20 tournament. The leg spinner is a well-established star in the T20 format, so the addition of Shadab will certainly be a big boost for Sixers.

Pakistan’s White Ball Team Deputy Captain Shadab is not a mass turner. But he relies on his accuracy and variation to outperform the batter. Leggies tend to curb runflow in the midover, and the ability to jump with regular wickets makes it an even bigger asset. Shadab teams up with veteran left-handed spinner Steve O’keeffe at the Sixers Camp.

Needless to say, Shadab is also a handy batter who can play big hits in crunch situations. His technical skills are also worth mentioning. With all these factors, Shadab pleases the captain in this format, and the Sixers happily embark him.

In the meantime, Shadab’s appointment with the Sixers was confirmed by Pack Passion. “Shadab Khan has signed up to play # BBL11 # Cricket for the Big Bash League’s Sydney Sixers,” veteran journalist Saji Sadik tweeted Thursday.

Speaking of Shadab’s success in the BBL so far, Leg Spinner played three games in the seventh tournament and returned to the heat with six wickets. His savings rate was just over 7. The latest leggy was also impressive. He performed well at this year’s T20 World Cup and was able to convince him of the recently completed T20I series against the West Indies.

So the Moises Henriquesled team will have great expectations for him. Meanwhile, Haris Rauf, Muhammad Hasnine, Sayed Faridun and Ahmed Daniyar are other Pakistani players who have signed an agreement to join the ongoing BBL. Harris, Faridun and Danielle represent the Melbourne Stars, and Hasnine plays at the Sydney Sanders.
