In the 14th match of IPL 2022, KKR defeated Mumbai Indians (MI vs KKR) by 5 wickets. In this match, where Pat Cummins snatched his batting meet, on the other hand the player banned for 2 years by BCCI for age fraud also made headlines. It is none other than Rasik Salam who belongs to Kashmir. Let us tell you that Salam is 22 years old and he hails from Kulgam district of Jammu and Kashmir. Let us tell you that during the match between KKR and Mumbai, Salam bowled 3 overs but he could not take a single wicket. Rashik may not have taken a single wicket, but he showed from the very first over that he would get into this long horse race.
A video of his first over has been shared on the IPL’s official Twitter account, in which the young bowler managed to trouble batsmen like Rohit Sharma with his quick delivery and swing. Salaam conceded only 3 runs in the first over. Ishan Kishan and Rohit Sharma were present at the crease when the bowler bowled his first over.

Rasik Salaam played his first match for Mumbai Indians in the year 2019, but in the same year the BCCI found a discrepancy in his age certificate and found him guilty in the investigation. After this the board decided to impose a two-year ban on him, but in those two years, Mumbai Indians fully supported and advised the fast bowler. This time Mumbai Indians bought Rasik for a base price of Rs 20 lakh, but if he had been playing continuously for the last two years and was not banned, he would have become a bowler of crores.
