Bad news for Rajasthan Royal fans - Kamran Khan will be away from cricket pitch for two weeks attending rehabilitation. But not so bad after all; for the two weeks rehabilitation is sure to turn the teenage bowler into a more matured sportsman.
Kamran Khan might have entertained you with his brand of exciting cricket, but it was not too comfortable for the eyes of the on-field umpires Rudi Koertzen and Gary Baxter. After the Rajasthan’s game against Chennai Super Kings in Centurion on April 30, Rajasthan Royal’s teenage sensation has been reported for suspect bowling action in certain deliveries, the issue was referred to the team management and the Technical Committee of the Indian Premier League. The team all along backed the player, for whom it was a rags to riches story coming true. The team and the captain maintained they would do everything to help the left-arm bowler come out of the crisis. “Kamran is a young man with a great work ethic and a huge appetite to learn. With these attributes in mind, we are confident that this issue will be resolved very quickly,” said Rajasthan Royals captain-cum-coach Shane Warne.
The committee that prescribed rehabilitation for the Rajasthan Royal bowler comprised of the eminent stars of international cricket. The former India captains Sunil Gavaskar and Ravi Shastri attended the committee, and Anurag Thakur and M A K Pataudi joined them via a conference. IPL Commissioner Lalit Modi was also a part of the review committee.
The young player who played tennis ball cricket totally lacked first class exposure when he was handed US$24,000 contract by Rajasthan. The course of his life took a happy turn when Darren Berry, the team’s director of coaching, spotted him in a Twenty20 tournament in Mumbai. Shane Warne chose him to bowl the decisive ‘super over’ in the win against Kolkata Knight Riders and he returned his captain’s trust just the right way. Out of five matches he played so far, he has taken six wickets at 20.66.
While it is surely a loss for the Rajasthan Royals, the rehabilitation is actually going to do good for its valuable bowler. As he gets back to his squad after two weeks, Rajasthan Royals would definitely find a Kamran, sharper and more vigorous.
