Former IPL star forced to do farming

Former IPL star forced to do farmingZeenews Sports Bureau

Pune Warriors have had a forgettable IPL 2012, and the main reason behind their failure has been the lack of some quality pace bowling. And why not, one of the former IPL stars, the left-hand pacer Kamran Khan was sent back home by the team management after being paid Rs 10 lakhs.

Khan who was the pick of the bowlers in 2009 and 2010 has been forced to turn to farming as the pacer has found no one to further nurture his talent, let alone play in the cash-rich tourney. He was sent back to Nadwa Sarai village in Azamgarh district of Uttar Pradesh, where he hails from.

The pacer who regularly clocked the 140 kmph mark was reported of a suspected bowling action by the umpires during a match against the Chennai Super Kings in 2009. The 21-year-old was retained by Rajasthan Royals the next year. He was picked by the Pune Warriors in their maiden season in 2011. He played only one match then, and none in 2012.

Speaking to Zeenews.com Khan said that he practices during his free hours and since his childhood days he was very passionate about playing the game and making his future in the same.

Well the Pune Warriors have lost 9 out of the 13 matches they have played so far in this season and one should not be surprised if the pacer is recalled to change their fortune in the next edition. Fingers crossed.

Ganguly was quick to point after a loss that they didn`t take part in the auction...so what does the team management do after that....send some good players home. Way to even dream of a win warriors...no wonder this team is struggling in the lower grid and will not be surpised if they even finish lower than Deccan (atleast Deccan played with some good players)

if he is really so talented and is able to bowl at genuine or near genuine pace the problem with his action could be rectified through some expert guidance. arranging a specialized coaching for this boy from any of the several retired international pace bowlers should not be a problem for the BCCI considering the financial resources that it has at its disposal
