Shane Warne Applauds Seven-Year-Old Spinner From Kashmir

Shane Warne mentioned the young spinner during the lunch break broadcast on the second day of the first Test in Adelaide.

A seven-year-old boy from Jammu and Kashmir's Ganderbal district has become an internet sensation after Australian spin great Shane Warne lauded his bowling. A video of the boy, Ahmad, bowling at a local match was shared by a journalist Islah Mufti on micro-blogging site Twitter earlier this year. "Easily ball of the century. A googly that turns a metre and a half. Shane Warne take a look. You have some competition," Mufti said in a tweet he posted on July 23. Warne responded to the tweet on Wednesday.

"This is outstanding! Well bowled young man," the spin legend tweeted.

After Warne's praise, Ahmad became a topic of discussion during Fox Cricket's lunch break broadcast on day two of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy tournament between Australia and India at Adelaide.

A clip of the broadcast on Fox Cricket's Instagram page has also garnered nearly 50,000 views.
