The 2022 Indian Premier League saw a number of youngsters make headlines with their performances. While Umran Malik became the season with his incredible speeds, players like Arshdeep Singh and Tilak Varma have also impressed with their performances in this edition. However, Umran Malik and Arshdeep were also rewarded for their performances with an India call-up for the five-match T20I series against South Africa. Alongside them, Mohsin Khan also impressed them as well.

Mohsin Khan played for the Lucknow Super Giants in IPL 2022, where he played in nine matches, picking 14 wickets at a stunning economy rate of 5.96 as well. Mohsin was picked on his base price of INR 20 lakh and his coach, Badruddin Siddiqui, who has also worked with the Indian pacer Mohammed Shami in the past revealed his conversation with Shami about Mohsin recently.

“When the auction was going on, I was sitting with Shami in his farmhouse. He was picked, and so was Mohsin. And then, we were having a conversation about him. Shami told me, ‘If you just give me four months with him, I’ll make him India’s best all-rounder’. He is a very good batsman. And even KL Rahul said earlier that he has a good understanding of the game,” Siddiqui shared during a conversation on Sports Yaari.

Mohsin Khan, however, didn’t get many opportunities with the bat in his cricketing career as in the IPL, he was usually a no.10 player for the Lucknow Super Giants. Siddiqui further added that Shami is always ready to help the youngsters as well. “There can be many bowlers but you need to have a good understanding. You need to know what ball to use against which batsman. Today, Shami is a big bowler. But he is always ready to help the up and coming youngsters,” concluded the coach.
