Shahbaz Nadeem has tons of experience in domestic cricket and it’s time for him to reflect that in the IPL. The bowler with the best bowling figures in List A cricket moved to the Sunrisers Hyderabad in IPL 2019 but wasn’t given a lot of opportunities.
Nadeem might be a regular feature for the side in IPL 2020 with the conditions suiting spin. If he does, the duo of Rashid Khan and Shahbaz Nadeem might be the best not only in terms of economy but also in terms of wickets for the season.
In 62 innings, he has picked only 42 wickets at an average of 37.38 runs per wicket. His economy rate in the T20 tournament is 7.48 and that might just improve in IPL 13.
However, the strips on offer in the United Arab Emirates won’t stop him from showing his mettle to the world. SRH would want the spinner from Jharkhand to be at his wily best to fox the batsmen from time to time.
