Khyber Pakhtunkhwa spinner Sajid Khan has said that he wants to have a nice, clean and smooth bowling action like Pakistan’s Saqlain Mushtaq, Australia’s Nathan Lyon and England’s Graeme Swann.
Sajid’s comments come after he pointed out that there are a lack of off-spinners in Pakistan.
He noted that many youngsters try and bowl mystery deliveries like the doosra, which ends up causing problems with their bowling action.
Rather than go down that route, Sajid wants to have a simple action and enjoy the same amount of success that Mushtaq, Lyon and Swann have all experienced.
Sajid Khan says there aren't many off-spinners coming through in Pakistan because they try to bowl the doosra and develop problems with their actions.
