Ashwin’s ‘advice’ on mystery ball will help Mujeeb against India
A mystery spinner adds a lot of value to any cricket playing side. It gives a good cushioning to the captain to have a back up player when needed in difficult situations. Its quite fascinating and exciting that Afghanistan have two quality mystery spinners in their ranks, Rashid Khan and Mujeeb Ur Rahman.
Rashid Khan has performed well in different leagues across the globe and has also done well for his nation. He has dominated from the word go and kept many quality batsman quiet with his mystery bowling. Afghanistan need his services to do well in the historic Test match against India. He will also need good support from his fellow teammates in quest to get the best results.
On the other hand, Mujeeb Ur Rahman is a great asset for the visitors. He is another mystery spinner who is difficult to get away. It’s highly possible that Rashid Khan gets all limelight in the built up and Mujeeb Ur Rahman might just turn out to be more dangerous. He states that Kings XI Punjab skipper, Ravichandran Ashwin taught him some important skills during the IPL 2018. This will surely help him create more troubles for the home team.
India take on Afghanistan on 14th June at Bengaluru. Ajinkya Rahane will lead team India in the absence of injured Virat Kohli.
