Legendary Australian spinner Shane Warne has shared high praise for a seven-year-old boy from Ganderbal district of Jammu and Kashmir, who has taken the internet by storm with his ball of the century.

Meanwhile, a senior journalist in Kashmir, Mufti Islah had posted a video of the boy bowling at a local match earlier this year. The video has already gathered 64000 views on Twitter.

Easily ball of the century. A googly that turns a metre and a half. @ShaneWarne take a look. You have some competition,” journalist, Islah Mufti had tweeted.

In a tweet, Warne praised the bowling skills of the boy identified as Ahmad, a resident of Ganderbal district in central Kashmir.

This is outstanding! Well bowled young man,” Warne tweeted, finishing his tweet with thumbs up emoticon.

His name is Ahmad. He is 7 year old from Ganderbal district of Kashmir. A prodigy, I guess,” Mufti later tweeted in reply to Warne.

After Shane Warne’s twitter praise for Ahmad, the young boy became a topic of discussion during Fox Cricket’s lunch break broadcast on day two of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy match between Australia and India at Adelaide.

The legendary spinner is currently a part of the commentary team of the ongoing four-match Test series against India and Australia. The visitors look well in line to take a 1-0 lead in the series as they need only six wickets on the final day at Adelaide.
