Vivo IPL 2021: CSK brings-in Afghanistan speedster Fazalhaq Farooqi as a net bowler for IPL 2021

Vivo IPL 2021: Chennai Super Kings (CSK) has roped-in fast bowler Fazalhaq Farooqi as a net bowler for the forthcoming season of the Indian Premier League (IPL). The speedster has left his country to join Chennai Super Kings which is training in Mumbai.

Afghanistan has made a strong mark in international cricket lately, especially the shorter format. Their cricketers in the shortest formats are ruling the charts.  Fazalhaq Farooqi has recently made his international debut against Zimbabwe and now he got the opportunity to play as a net bowler for CSK.

Rashid Khan, Mohammad Nabi, Qais Ahmed, Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Zahir Khan are some of the best players from Afghanistan who have done tremendously well across the franchise cricket.

It will be a great learning experience for the 20-years old seamer from Afghanistan. He will get the opportunity to bowl against MS Dhoni, Faf du Plessis, Suresh Raina and many others.

The three-times champion side will begin its campaign of IPL 2021 against the runner-ups of IPL 2020, Delhi Capitals on 10th April in Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai.
