The inception of Indian Premier League (IPL) in 2008 was viewed with an objective of providing exposure to the young talent that resides in the bits and corners of the country. And after ten years, the league has been quite successful in becoming opportune for many who have blossomed at the highest level. Not only for youngsters in India, even overseas talent looks towards IPL as a platform to get global recognition.

In most recent times, the players from Afghanistan with the likes of Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi, owe a lot to the league in terms of their rise to the fame. As a recent addition to the list, yet another mystery spinner from the same land has been successful in earning a name for himself just after two games at the helm. Mujeeb-ur-Rahman is the latest spin sensation who is asking people to make a note of this guy.

Praised by his Afghanistan teammate

Last night, in the game between Kings XI and Royal Challengers at M.Chinnaswamy stadium, the young off-spinner showed his class as he deceived Virat Kohli on one of his variations. It was a huge moment of success for the 17-year old as he dismissed arguably the world’s current best batsman on a delivery that he must have faced several times previously. It was a ‘wrong un’ that the RCB skipper failed to pick, creating a huge gap between bat and pad, as it went to hit timber.

His efforts received much appreciation from the commentators and those who keep a close sight at the game. One of his teammate from Afghanistan, Mohammad Nabi praised the youngster on a peach of a delivery that got rid of the Indian skipper. Nabi, who himself is a part of Sunrisers Hyderabad, hasn’t got a chance to play so far in the tournament but was ecstatic on seeing the youngster do so well.

He shared his emotions with his fellow teammate via Twitter. He posted a video of the dismissal with a caption, “Well done @MujeebZadran”.

Here’s what he tweeted:
