He has scored 4 half centuries, it is said that his bowling average is 15.00. He had four 5 wicket hauls as well. He is surely to create a mass of buzz into the cricket team with his rendition. The list goes on and on as we look at his performance as well as his score and wicket taking capacity. His bowling average sometimes is 11.56 also which is again not that bad.
