The only Jammu and Kashmir cricketer featuring in the twelfth edition of Indian Premier League (IPL) on Wednesday had a good opening outing in the star-studded Mumbai Indians pre-season camp.

The pacer bowled for the first time under the watchful eyes of Kiwi legend, Shane Bond while teamed-up with experienced pacer, Mitchell McClenaghan in the net session.

The entire team has taken the notice of the teenager as he hasn’t been ‘shy’ in bowling the bouncers.

“The entire team also saw the first glimpse of the 17-year-old pacer from Jammu and Kashmir, Rasikh Salam Dar.” A report in Mumbai Indians’ official website said.

Rasikh despite having underwent a minor injury in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, however, had looked quite smooth in the initial outing in the camp.

“The youngster, who returned after an injury lay-off, bent his back and was not shy to bowl the short ball.” It added.

The rookie has left a mark straightaway with his impressive bowling.

“Rasikh was bowling probing lines under the guidance of bowling coach Shane Bond. Rasikh bowled in tandem with our seasoned campaigner Mitchell McClenaghan.” The report further said.
