Shane Keith Warne aka Shane Warne is a former Australian cricketer and ODI captain. He is undeniably one of the greatest bowlers of all time. And it seems like it really does take one to know one. Confused? Let me explain. A few months ago, a Kashmir based journalist tagged Shane and tweeted a video of a 7-yr-old boy. This young boy from Kashmir is one of the many cricket crazy Indians, who live and breathe the sport. But what is so special about this kid?
Well, it turns out that the kid is also an impeccable bowler. After seeing the kid’s video, Shane could not stop himself from appreciating him. And by the end of this, you too will agree.
Well, it all started on July 23, 2018, when Mufti Islah sent out a tweet tagging Shane Warne.

Now, we don’t know why the delay, but it wasn’t until recently that Shane Warne took notice. However, the moment he did, he took to Twitter appreciating the kid.
Shane Warne wrote ‘This is outstanding! Well bowled young man.’

Mufti also tweeted about the identity of the boy, this is what he wrote:
“His name is Ahmad. He is 7 years old from Ganderbal district of Kashmir. A prodigy, I guess.”
Well, sure seems like it. Soon everyone started taking notice of this young boy and his bowling skills. In fact, the kid even became a point of discussion during the India Australia Border-Gavaskar trophy match. During the lunch break for the Fox Cricket’s broadcast, the members got to talking.
Check out the clip for the discussion below:
India is a cricket crazy nation. There is no denying that there’s a lot of talent in our nation. So what did you think of this 7-yr-old’s bowling skills? Hopefully, he will make the nation proud someday, what say?
