#2 Plenty of tricks up his sleeve

Khan has several weapons to dismiss batsmen

For a player of his age and experience, the leggie has a rich repertoire. With a ball in hand, the teenage sensation has a bag of tricks.

Along with conventional leg break, he bowls deceptive flippers and well-disguised googlies, making life more difficult for the batsman. In fact, his googlies out-number the leg breaks most of the times. It would be safe to say that the googly is his main weapon. What makes facing him even more difficult is that he bowls all these variations with almost no change in his action.

So, if you are a batsman facing him you are going to have a hard time picking which one he bowls, let alone scoring boundaries.

You can see why Sunrisers Hyderabad spent over Rs 4 crore on an overseas spinner with little experience.
