Redbacks make Younis Khan spasm with excitement

Khan debuted for the Redbacks just yesterday against the Speedblitz blues
It was a magnificent day.

Not for Khan. He made 3.

But the Redbacks won a nail biter off the penultimate ball of the day, off a misfield when they needed 2 off 2.

I’m glad I’m not that fielder.

What was most interesting to note was though Khans reaction when they did win.

He was fist pumping and hugging players he probably does’nt even know yet. Like the commentator said ‘it was like he’d won the world cup’.

For a minute, you’d be forgiven for thinking he was having some kind of weird whole body orgasm.

I’ve never seen Khan that excited in my life.

Maybe he is just happy to be playing some cricket again.
Maybe’s hes happy not to be in Pakistan with Ijaz Butt going crazy.

Or Maybe he was trying to shake off the jet lag.

But who cares, its good to see these international guys show passion for this type of game.

Specially a Pakistani, who as well all know by now wont feature in a test match this whole year.

Keep the spirit alive Younis. And hopefully some runs next time

    I finally made it to ur blog. Very late I am cos I see what I like!

    Younis is probably the most excited player in the world. Do u not c his reactions when he gets to 100s?

    Even in domestic games in Pakistan the guy is a like a bunny on batteries.

    Knowing him, he probably made friends with the South Australians the moment he landed down under.

    g> You know Younis ?? Thats great.

    Well yea but I dint think he would be this excited for the 4 games he is gonna play.

    Its good to see though. Specially with Pak cricket in such turmoil as it is.
