Dubai: The list of dangerous bowlers playing in the Indian Premier League (IPL 2020) is Rashid Khan. Rashid Khan, the world’s number one T20 bowler, has claimed 55 wickets in three seasons, but the Afghan spinner says that his focus is not on taking wickets but on bowling economically.
This star player from Sunrisers Hyderabad said, ‘Never thought of taking so many wickets’.
His best bowling economy rate in the IPL is 6.55 and average is 21.69. Rashid has said before the match against Royal Challengers Bangalore, ‘My focus is always on bowling economically for the team. When I bowl economically, the bowlers on the other end help to take wickets.
He said, ‘I concentrate on putting dot balls and putting pressure on the batsmen so that they can take the risk. My focus is on the needs of the team, which helps the team, it is important for me.
The 22-year-old player said that he has five variations that surprise the batsmen. He said, ‘I have four to five ways to catch the ball. I use them on the basis of wickets. These five grips help me to bowl differently because each type of ball pitches differently ‘.
Rashid said, ‘I use them mixed. If I have variety, I need to use them well. I use my fingers and shoulders to accelerate ‘.
He said, ‘I am working hard on the new ball but until I do not play in the long format, I cannot improve it. But I am trying to perfect it on the net because it is difficult to bowl in a shorter format.
