There have been few players who have created as much interest in a short time-frame like Fawad Ahmed, and for good reason – he’s a very talented bowler.
After seeing him play on just a couple of occasions, people in the know - including a couple of state captains - had labelled Fawad as the best spin bowler in Australia since Shane Warne and Stuart MacGill.
Fawad possesses the quality that separates good spinners from average tweakers – accuracy – rarely bowling a loose delivery that batsmen can feast on.
That is what excites the Renegades’ hierarchy, with the “spin-to-win” philosophy yielding proven results, especially at Etihad Stadium. And there’s plenty to be excited about with the potential to unleash the trio of Ahmed, Murali and Obi on the opposition this summer.
