From J&K, now Abdul Samad is storming the IPL.

The serendipity that brought Abdul Samad to the IPL 2020 is through Mewada, coach of J&K. When the Sunrisers Hyderabad’s mentor VVS Laxman was searching for a middle-order finisher for the team, Mewada recommended Abdul Samad to Laxman.

About Abdul Samad

In fact, Abdul Samad is not the first J&K player to make his debut into IPL. Before him, three other Jammu & Kashmir players have already joined the Indian domestic auctions including Mansoor Dar, Parvez Rasool, and Rasikh Salam. And the Abdul Samad IPL price in the nearest auction is not higher compared to his predecessors as well.

Abdul Samad is mentored by Irfan Pathan plus the coaching from Milap Mewada. His ability was first discovered by the two senior J&K in 2018 when he was just 16 years old. At that time, Samad impressed Pathan with his in-born bowling skill. The J&K player-cum-mentor shared in an interview that Samad was effortlessly hitting the ball then. Irfan realized what he could do to improve this 16-yr boy when looking through Samad’s numbers.

“…He didn't have one 50-plus score. I took him aside and told him he would be put in the probables, but he needed to work on preserving his wicket. It's not about six-hitting.”

Abdul Samad was born on October 28 in 2001. He will welcome his 19th birthday next month along with the team of SRH. His role in the game is an all-rounder who follows right-handed batting style and also right-hand bowling.

As Irfan said in his sharing and seen from his past statistics, the most striking ability of Abdul Samad is scoring sixes. Reacting to this, many people doubt whether the IPL debutant is able to build an innings as well.

In fact, Abdul Samad has the potential of a versatile player who knows how to contribute to the team in different ways. However, the time of Jammu & Kashmir doesn’t give him much chance to be trained for and showcase all his abilities. Given the vacancy Sunrisers expect him to fill in, Abdul Samad may play the dual role of both finishing and building an innings, depending on the game development.
