The social media account of the International Cricket Council (ICC) shared a video of their fan of the week. The 2-year-old aspiring cricketer is from Bangladesh and, as seen in the video, wants to become a batsman. The kid is being trained by his father. He guided his son to move his feet while the ball was thrown at the youngster.
Though the Bangladeshi kid was hitting all the ball in one direction, it was impressive to see his dedication towards the game at such a young age.
The batting did make the netizens laud him. "He's only two, but his off-side technique is absolutely gorgeous. Strike a pose Ali - you are the ICC's Fan of the Week! With some more throw-downs from dad, you could very well be playing for Bangladesh one day #LoveCricket #Cricket," ICC's post read.
What funny was the social media team of ICC later shared a remix version of the video. It had a running commentary as if the kid is actually batting in a game.
Social media has made it easy to showcase one's talent. We have seen young Pakistani kids bowling as well. The videos went viral on Twitter and legends like Waqar Younis and Wasim Akram had responded to it.
