A series of videos of a seven-year-old legspinner claiming to be the next Shane Warne has set social media on fire. Further, Warne himself has given young Eli Mikal Khan the thumbs up.
A native of Balochistan, Eli has uploaded several videos showing a lot of variety and control. Eli’s armory includes the “wrong un”, googly, and flipper. Meanwhile, he has already received ten thousand views on Twitter alone.
Further, he was lauded by the legendary spinner Shane Warne for showing such control at a tender age.
Eli’s bowling skills:
Not afraid of some self-promotion, the youngster calls himself “the world’s youngest and amazing cricketer” and “the only replacement of “Shane Warne”.
