Former cricketer and commentator Simon Dull praised him and compared him to another Pakistani bowler.
Took five wickets against Lucknow
Lucknow Super Giants were out of the playoffs for the second year in a row. This year Mumbai Indians gave him a deep wound. The match was equal till the first innings, but in the second innings it started to look completely one-sided. LSG batsmen put up a very disappointing display and kept throwing away their wickets. Akash Madhwal, the young fast bowler of Mumbai Indians, took five wickets while presenting an example of excellent bowling. He broke the back of Lucknow by taking two big wickets of Ayush Badoni and Nicholas Pooran on consecutive balls in a single over.
“His bowling action…”
Akash Madhwal shone in the Eliminator match against LSG in the past. He made 5 players of Lucknow walk by giving just five runs in 3.3 overs. Due to his bowling, Mumbai Indians were able to win that match easily. Have to see how he bowls against Gujarat today. It is certain that the eyes of the fans will be on him only. At the same time, former cricketer and commentator Simon Dull has praised him a lot and compared his action to another Pakistani bowler Hasan Ali. Infact he said during commentary in IPL,
“Madhwal’s bowling action is like Pakistan’s fast bowler Hasan Ali. Madhwal is an engineer by profession but his passion for cricket brought him to IPL. He has played the role of net bowler for RCB before joining Mumbai Indians, but he never got a chance to play there.
